A few women walked in Adelaide on to raise money in the making a difference campaign for World Cancer Day. The aim was to raise funds to support those with bowel cancer and most importantly raise awareness, especially for younger people.

My daughter Gemma who is only 38, is well known to all walkers and she has been living with bowel cancer for almost three years now and continues daily to fight this disease.

She is committed to raising awareness and does this through her Instagram and wrote a book by the same name. We all admire the way she perseveres and fights and supports other fighters. The walkers varied in ages, but all committed to this cause. We joined Gemma’s team to raise awareness in young people and close the gap.
