We are a small group of friends who have all been affected by bowel cancer and/or Crohn’s disease, either personally or through the eyes of a loved one.
We owe our lives or that of our loved ones to the surgical expertise, quality of treatment and care delivered by
Professor Richard Cohen MD, FRCS Professor of Surgery and a Consultant at UCLH.
So when Richard told one of us that the pioneering reaserch he and Dr Mohammad Eddama, Senior Clinical Research Fellow at UCL have been
undertaking for the early detection of bowel cancer before symptoms occur and chances of a cure are very high; together with research on a drug to modulate the debilitating inflammatory response in Crohn’s disease, required an crucial injection of funds to continue, we came together to create this fundraiser-
as with your help, together, we could make a huge difference to lives of so many.
