Newcastle woman does Dry July to help twin sister fighting bowel cancer at Calvary Mater Hospital

EMILY Taylor was feeling fairly helpless when her identical twin sister, Christina Milojeski, was diagnosed with stage 4 bowel cancer in April.

The sisters are 29, so when Ms Milojeski presented to the hospital with persistent stomach cramps, doctors did not immediately suspect bowel cancer to be the culprit.

The majority of newly diagnosed cases occur in people aged 55 and above, although Bowel Cancer Australia says there has been a 186 per cent increase in cases in adolescents and young adults in the past 30 years.
