Mom of Three Dies After Doctors Said She Was ‘Too young to Have Bowel Cancer’


Kathy Narrier is on a mission to help young people better understand the risk of liver and bowel cancer after her 34-year-old daughter passed away earlier this year.

In 2015, Nicole Yarran, from western Australia, had been feeling unwell for months — she was losing weight, feeling bloated, constipated and discovered blood in her stool.

“She had raised her concerns with her GP and was simply told that she was ‘too young for bowel cancer,’ and was diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS),” Narrier told Unilad. Nicole was only 32 at the time, and she spoke with another doctor at the practice for confirmation.
