Ben's Bowel Movements 2017

My page:

Cancer sucks. I've been fighting Bowel cancer for more than 5 years. There have been many difficult moments during that time, but mine isn't a story of woe. Living with cancer and having regular treatment have been tough, but over the last few years my family and I have managed to pack in tons of life, made some amazing memories and I've even run a few marathons along the way.

My health has been a little up and down over the last year, but I'm determined to carry on fundraising. 

Ben's Bowel Movements supports three charities that have helped or inspired us during my cancer adventure. Beating Bowel Cancer, the Rosemere Cancer Foundation who support the treatment centre I visit at Royal Preston Hospital and Mummy's Star, an amazing charity that supports women going through cancer during pregnancy.

The funds we raise will go straight to these charities and help them further their work.
