I was diagnosed with Stage 2b bowel cancer in August 2017, when I went to my doctor feeling extremely tired and seeing blood when I would go to the bathroom.

Diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2017, Julie started hosting charity events in support of Bowel Cancer Australia after being told she was in remission.

“I was diagnosed with bowel cancer January 2017 and had part of my bowel removed the following month. Unfortunately, the cancer had spread outside the colon, therefore needing chemo, and I finished treatment in September 2017.”

Irrewarra-Beeac Football Netball Club’s desire to put bowel cancer in the spotlight gave one of the Bombers’ own a platform to share her story in a bid to help others this Bowel Cancer Awareness Month.

"I think we all assumed Andrew was going to be ok. They were going to remove the tumour; he’d have some treatment and he’d be ok."
