Helen, who applied for funding from the Rosemère Cancer Foundation, said, “ACPGBI members are all specialists in bowel disease, including bowel cancer.

“Attending the Annual General Meeting at the Edinburgh International Conference Center was an opportunity to update our knowledge, particularly with recent advances in the management and treatment of bowel cancer, and to share best practice strategies with colleagues in the UK.

“We are very grateful to the Rosemère Cancer Foundation and its supporters for helping us to be there.
