I was diagnosed at the age of 44 in 2015 with stage 3 bowel cancer.

I was working as a plasterer in Perth when diagnosed and had just been made redundant from working as a FIFO construction labourer.

I was lucky I did something after noticing some symptoms including a change in bowel movements, rectal bleeding and tiredness.

I was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2004 at the age of 60.

The only symptom I had experienced was rectal bleeding – not a lot, but enough to think it might be a problem – so I went to my GP. After looking into my family history, we think my grandmother might have had bowel cancer too, but these things were rarely diagnosed properly back then so we can’t be certain.

Well I thought I was healthy.
