Beating Bowel Cancer
Beating Bowel Cancer is a leading national charity for bowel cancer patients, working hard to save lives from the UK’s 2nd biggest cancer killer which claims 50 lives every day. They encourage people to communicate frankly about all aspects of this disease, and not to be embarrassed to talk about bottoms and bowels! The charity aims to improve bowel cancer awareness amongst both medical professionals and the general public, by providing authoritative information about the disease, symptoms and the treatment choices available. They also offer support and help to anyone affected by bowel cancer

Remembering Jane

Alastair Clegg

My page:

So our original plan was that Jane was going to bring Zak, Ilias and Rosie up to London to support me in the BUPA 10K.  We thought it would be a fun day out, and a chance to raise some money for a charity that had done so much to support us during the last 18 months.  We have a Beating Bowel Cancer flag and everything.

But the cancer had other ideas, and on 26 January Jane died in my arms. Bowel cancer's devastation of our little family was complete.

So this page is now really all about remembering the most wonderful, vibrant, inspiring person I have ever met.  Jane was, quite simply, brilliant.  We are bereft without her.  The fact that I am pottering around a 10k course is just an excuse to set up this page.  It's now all about Jane.

Please donate some money.  The battle against bowel cancer receives far less coverage and funding than other forms of cancer and yet it is one of the nastiest and most brutal there is.  And Beating Bowel Cancer is a fantastic charity that makes a real difference to those with the disease and their families.  Trust me.  I know.

And please, please, please, follow their advice about symptoms (  We're British.  We are squeamish and a bit silly about bowels and bottoms and stuff.  But do NOT ignore the symptoms. GET CHECKED.  (But donate before you do!)

Thank you.
