Alan Bennett talked openly with Bowel Research UK about his experiences with bowel cancer that occurred twenty-three years ago.
We spent an afternoon chatting with Alan who very kindly allowed us to capture his thoughts and reflections on surviving bowel cancer.
‘I’ve been enrolled as a member in that exclusive aristocracy who, for however long, have survived cancer. Thankfully it’s a growing aristocracy and one day I’m sure such survival will seem commonplace and hardly worth mentioning. Meanwhile, I am one of the many who are here when they did not expect to be: take heart.”
