Bowel cancer – it’s the second most deadly form of the disease in the country, claiming the lives of more than 4,000 Australians each year.
And an increasing number of those are young people.
Now one Newcastle mother, Kate Vincent, is helping to spread the importance of early diagnosis, hoping her own cancer battle will save others.
