Welcome to Renee Writes. I’m Renee Wallace, and I write about all things related to my ongoing fight with bowel cancer. I love to write about my story, my life, changes I am making around my health and wellbeing, and whatever else takes my fancy during the day.
Please have a read of my story, my blog, check out my store, or download some of my recipes.
In April 2016, sitting in a Dr’s office, I was faced with a CT scan picture on the Dr’s computer screen. It was fairly obvious that there was a huge tumour growing in my bowel. Yep. I had bowel cancer.
At the time I was a healthy 38 year old, wife, and mum to a 7 year old, who had never had any major health issues. Our life was turned completely upside down, churned around, and spat out the other side.
This blog and website is a place where I can share my journey, from diagnosis, through my surgeries, and how I have had to change my life around completely.
As part of my journey through life I am now dedicated to highlighting bowel cancer as not just a disease of the elderly. It can affect anyone, anytime, for any reason. Through this website and blog I hope to educate on the signs and symptoms of bowel cancer, how to “know your normal” and the steps I am taking to prevent a recurrence happening in my body, and how I am improving my health along the way.
