Prior to my diagnosis, I was an elite athlete within touch football (refereeing) having represented Australia numerous times since 2010, the most recent international tournament in April 2016. I was ranked No: 1 in QLD, No: 2 in Australia and third in the world.

I first went to my GP in late 2014 for treatment for haemorrhoids and was referred to a specialist. I revisited my specialist in early 2016 as my younger brother had had appendicitis in late 2014 and during that procedure a tumour on his large intestine was discovered. He underwent surgery to have it removed but it was recommended his brothers get checked.

Upon relocating to Queensland from New South Wales in October 2015, I registered with a GP in my local area, primarily to be able to get prescription renewals for blood pressure medication I was taking.

At the initial consultation my GP took a family history. After noting that my Grandmother on my mother's side had died from bowel cancer at the age of 53, my doctor suggested that I should have a colonoscopy as part of my health management plan.
