My Story

I was diagnosed with bowel cancer at age 47. It was a bit of a shock – I was very healthy and thought I was basically bulletproof. Four surgeries and 8 rounds of chemotherapy later I am happy to be cancer free and getting on with my life.

Bowel cancer often goes undetected for some time. People are reluctant to talk about changes in their toilet habits or the appearance of blood in their poop! GPs may sometimes misdiagnose the cause of your symptoms. It took me three visits to GPs before I was diagnosed.

I want to help raise awareness of the disease so that people act immediately if they have any potential symptoms. If you catch things early then you have a very high chance of making a full recovery.

Beards aren’t just for hipsters, those with tatts, men that ride motorbikes or people that are too lazy to shave. All you need to do is grow a beard (or some bum fluff) for the month of December, and promote your facial hair to raise awareness and funds for New Zealand’s second biggest cancer killer – bowel cancer!

Bowel Cancer kills more than 1,200 New Zealander’s every year and a change in bowel movements is one of the most common symptoms. The good news is that bowel cancer is curable in more than 75 percent of cases if caught early. We need your help to continue our lifesaving work, so please help by showing your support this Decembeard.
