Bowel Cancer Survivor raises awareness of condition among women

A bowel cancer survivor from Southport will be sharing her experience of the condition at a Ladies Lunch in Cheshire. Janet Marshall, 47, was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2010 and has now been given the all clear.

Janet is working alongside the charity Beating Bowel Cancer to help raise awareness of the condition and she will be taking part in the event at Rowton Hall Hotel, Chester on Friday March 8.

Ladies will have the opportunity to enjoy a delicious two course meal, browse some stalls selling jewellery, clothes, scarves and cosmetics plus the opportunity to listen to Janet’s inspirational experience.

Janet Marshall said: “It was a shock to be diagnosed with bowel cancer and I’ve now beaten the disease and living life to the full. I want to raise awareness of the symptoms so more people know what to look out for. I was thrilled to be asked to take part in this Ladies Lunch event and support such a great cause.”

Community fundraiser, Rachel Thomas, said: “We recently held a ladies shopping and pamper evening in the county which was very popular and we hope this event will be too.

“Bowel cancer is a disease which affects so many people in the UK and all money raised at this event will be used to help raise awareness of bowel cancer and support patients and their families coping with the disease.”

Tickets are priced at £22 each and can be bought by contacting Rachel on 07825910943.
