"At the age of 14, I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis, a condition that increases your risk of bowel cancer. But my story is more about recognising what can happen to the human body on the inside, even if you look normal on the outside. No matter what your age or lifestyle."
This Bowel Cancer Awareness Month, people living with or beyond bowel cancer, loved ones, businesses, schools, hospitals, health centres and pharmacies throughout Australia showed their support, sharing their stories and raising funds in a range of ways.
