Lucy went out and about in north shields to meet people,educating them about stomas and telling people about her upcoming zipwire off the Tyne Bridge. On her journeys she met some wonderful people!
Lucy and Dr Russel went to say hello to the bowel cancer awareness team. Spreading awareness about ostomy’s, the unspoken ‘cure’ to bowel cancer. The team were wonderful and weredoing a great job! Lucy reminded them that the syptoms of bowel cancer are alsothe same symptoms for UC and crohns, and if they get younger people saying they suffer from these syptoms to maybe suggest these as possible causes.
