Practical & Peer-to-Peer Support - Camille

Mother of 4, and nurse, Camille from South Australia was just 38 when she first presented to the emergency department with severe abdominal pain, but was dismissed due to her age.

After a total of three visits to the emergency department she finally insisted on further investigation and discovered she had bowel cancer.

Camille wants to have a frank discussion about bowel cancer and make other’s aware of the importance of trusting your instincts and insisting on further investigation. Camille talks to Stephanie Bansemer-Brown on The Bottom Line Podcast about her experience, the importance of connection and Bowel Cancer Australia’s Peer-to-Peer Support Network.
