My mum was diagnosed with bowel cancer in June 2018 and unfortunately it spread and my mum lost her fight with cancer in February this year. Watching my mum slowly become weaker and weaker was heart breaking for me and my two brothers.
Bowel cancer is the second biggest cancer killer in the UK claiming more than 16,000 lives a year, that's over 44 people every day.
Every 15 minutes in the UK someone is diagnosed with bowel cancer. That’s almost 42,000 people every year. Every 30 minutes someone dies from the disease in the UK.
So I am racing to fight not only for people with bowel cancer but for people fighting all cancer. Together we will beat this horrible illness.
