Dan (otherwise known as Cock or Cocka) was 36 when he was diagnosed with advanced metastatic bowel cancer. Between his first symptoms and being diagnosed was 3 months and yet the cancer had spread to his liver, lungs and lymph nodes. Before he was diagnosed, we weren’t aware of how common it was in young people.

Before he was diagnosed, he was a healthy, active guy who had played hockey since he was a junior. He continued to umpire hockey and ride his bike during most of his treatment. As a family, we made every moment count.

Heartbreakingly, Dan passed away on the 23rd March 2021. He was 38.

Early detection, along with better awareness about the increasing prevalence of bowel cancer in young people is so important and that is why Sam (his wife) and friends are taking part in the JLF trek.
