One of Loxton Aero’s Club members, Patrick Vowles developed bowel cancer and passed away in 2011. As a tribute to his contribution to the club built an extension to the club-rooms as a BBQ area and named “Pat’s Place” in honour of him.
 
Duani Vowles on behalf of her family officially opened the kitchen, unveiling the sign above the door proclaiming this as “Pat’s Place” and thanked the Club for honouring her late husband with this kitchen extension. “Pat would be very chuffed to have this kitchen built, and he’d love to have all pilots and friends of the Aero Club to enjoy this resource, it’s a great addition to the club. The family and I are very thankful to the club for naming this in his honour” she said.

The Australian Taxation Office in Canberra got behind Bowel Cancer Australia and Red Apple Day to help raise awareness.
 
“Our Red Apple Day display and fundraiser at ATO National Office went really well. We handed out all the flyers as staff came in for the day and sold all the pins by the end of lunch. We also had flyers on all the notice boards and at the top of the escalators as you enter the building. On the day everyone was really supportive and lots of people asked questions about tests. Unfortunately we did hear stories about people who had lost loved ones to bowel cancer and at a young age” said Michelle.

Michael became a #Never2Young Champion and support Young Survivors Week 2016 and helping to raise much needed awareness that you’re never too young to have bowel cancer.
 
“Initially it was a hard decision whether to go public with my cancer fight and looking back now, I believe it was the right decision. The amount of awareness raised through Facebook exceeded my expectations and knowing other people's lives may be potentially saved is a satisfying feeling. The continuous support and the generous donations topped $7,000 in the month of June (online donations + 5 boxes of bowel cancer awareness ribbons)” said Michael.
 
Thank you Michael for sharing your story and making a difference.
