Date Posted: 01 Feb 2021

Alan Bennett talked openly with Bowel Research UK about his experiences with bowel cancer that occurred twenty-three years ago.

You can see the video in full on YouTube :

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.

Meanwhile, I am one of the many who are here when they did not expect to be: take heart.”
