This not about me but about YOU!
You have all supported me though my journey, many of you say what an inspirational person I am - therefore if you haven't already acted upon that inspiration now is the time to do so...Let me inspire you to get checked out if you notice any abnormal changes in your bowel habits however small...they can do very simple tests which take minutes:
April is 'Beating Bowel Cancer' month...familiarise yourself with the symptoms and remember that you don't have to have ALL the symptoms. If in doubt, check it out

All the very best
