Popular radio host and former golfer, Mark Allen was just 50 and feeling as fit as he had ever been when he was diagnosed with stage 4 bowel cancer in 2018.

Mark had 70% of his rectum removed, 18% of his lungs and extensive chemotherapy, but despite this, a couple of further bumps in the road Mark’s optimism shines through and he considers himself incredibly lucky. Back on the golf course, he was given all clear in May 2020.

Mark chats about the importance of remaining positive and encourages Australians not to be complacent and to DO the screening test and not leave it in your top draw.
