Supports The Jodi Lee Foundation
Bowel Cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer, with one in 12 Australians developing Bowel Cancer by the age of 85. It is the second largest cause of cancer deaths in Australia.
My mother in law was diagnosed with bowel cancer and passed away within 11 months of diagnosis, so this charity is very close to my heart.
If caught in time, 90% of bowel cancer cases can be treated successfully so any opportunity to raise awareness and funds for the on-going fight against bowel cancer and to promote early detection is so important to me and my family.
