Hi, my 28 year old husband was diagnosed with bowel cancer on 29 April 2004. He had a large part of his bowel removed and we have been advised that he had Dukes B Cancer. He starts Chemotherapy on Monday. Of course this has been a difficult and scary time but we have had incredible support from family & friends. Also the Australian health system is excellent and there has been no real drain on our finances. I am looking to communicate with other young bowel cancer sufferers as I feel this would help my husband over the next few months. We also have a 4 year old daughter who has given us all strength. Thanks so much for reading.....
