“For 11 years my father Nunzio fought bowel cancer with strength and determination unrivalled. He inspired us all on a daily basis with his unshaken positivity and optimism. Unfortunately, the available treatments stopped working, and he was eventually taken from us.
One of his few regrets was not getting checked out earlier, because his mother was diagnosed with bowel cancer five or so years beforehand. The awareness wasn’t there, and that is what I want to create. It’s not just about raising money, but about creating ongoing awareness. Early detection can lead to prevention.
I’m just doing my part to raise as much money and awareness as possible, to fight this disease.” ~ Dan.
