This Decembeard I’m growing a beard to raise vital funds for the charity Beating Bowel Cancer and helping them reach their goal of raising £250,000 so they can beat bowel cancer.
I do this as someone personally affected by bowel cancer (my father died from it when I was aged 4) but also as a Hospital Consultant who sees patients with bowel cancer and who does research into better ways to prevent bowel cancer using simple, safe drugs and nutrients, as well as adopting lifestyle changes such as weight loss.
I know that a large proportion of bowel cancer cases are preventable and further research can make this a reality.
Thank you for giving to bowel cancer research.
Keep looking at this page if you can face updates on my attempt at beard growth. There'll be pictures on FB and Twitter also. Future photos will not include the snake
