The latest musician to come on board, The Record, my forthcoming bowel cancer charity book, is Jay Aston from Gene Loves Jezebel. I have met him once before as we were both at Abbey Road in 2014 to participate in The Scriptures, the world's longest officially released song. That was where I photographed Mike Peters for, Lives & Times, the last fundraising book. The plan is hopefully to meet up with Jay in October, so that should be another great chapter for the book. A massive thanks to Donna Grant for making this happen 😊
Bowel cancer is the second highest cancer killer in the UK claiming 16,000 lives each year. However if detected early it is very treatable in over 90% of cases. The subject of bowels and poo etc. is still something we don't like to talk about, so a lot more needs to be done to help raise awareness about this awful disease. My Mum was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2012, and passed away in 2016. All proceeds raised from sales will be donated to the Beating Bowel Cancer charity.
