#Nevertooyoung – Patient Story, Britt Chambers
Britt Chambers is 31 and found out in the middle of December 2017 that she has stage 4 bowel cancer. Unfortunately because of the length of time it has been left to grow it as spread to her lungs and is in lymph nodes around the body.
We also thank those who took part in Decembeard 2017 where we raised over $16,000!
There is still time totake part of our Patients Survey, As you will know, bowel cancer has a huge impact on many New Zealanders and their families. But until now, some key information has been missing that could make a difference for patients in the future – that is, information about the experiences of patients and their whānau/families, and their different pathways to a bowel cancer diagnosis.
The Saint Clair Vineyard Half Marathon is on again on the 12th of May 2018 and there are still some charity entries available to run in this iconic 1/2 Marathon.
