I'm taking part in Race for Life to raise money to beat cancer sooner as well as raising awareness for Bowel Cancer.

In memory of

My Brother

I will be running in memory of my beautiful brother, my soldier, who was diagnosed with stage 3 aggressive Bowel Cancer at the age of just 31 in October 2017. Sadly loosing his battle in December 2018, only 25 days after being told his cancer was terminal.

Bowel cancer is a general term for cancer that begins in the large bowel. Depending on where the cancer starts, bowel cancer is sometimes called colon or rectal cancer.

Bowel cancer is one of the most common types of cancer diagnosed in the UK. Most people diagnosed with it are over the age of 60.

Bowel cancer is very treatable but the earlier it is diagnosed, the easier it is to treat. People whose cancer is diagnosed at an early stage have a much higher chance of successful treatment than those whose cancer has become more widespread.

For more information on signs and symptoms / diagnosis and treatment can be found on

Thank you, L x
