Owen Malpas – Decembeard Ambassador

Owen, is our Decembeard ambassador and 2020 is the second year he has been involved with this fundraiser.
 
He says, “On Father’s Day my autistic son passed away after living with stage 4 bowel cancer for 3 years. He was an inspirational young man, full of love and energy. He gave everything ago until his last moments. Even people he didn’t meet were touched by his courage.
 
“They say bowel cancer is an old peoples disease but 21 is way too young to die from such a horrible disease and I am hearing of more and more young people getting it. I want to use this Decembeard to help raise money so that more and more people can become aware though the amazing job that Bowel Cancer New Zealand do.”
