My name is Patrick Wymer. I live in Penarth in South Wales. In June 2017 I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Bowel Cancer. I’m being treated at Velindre Cancer Centre in Cardiff. The purpose of this site is to record my thoughts, advice, pictures and anything else related to bowel cancer and other issues that matter to me.

Charity Walk

A group of six of my former work colleagues and friends completed a 3 day charity walk on the Pembrokeshire Coast Path on 3 – 5 May 2018. I joined them for days 1 and 3. They raised a staggering £65,000 for Bowel Cancer UK and Velindre Cancer Centre in Cardiff where I’m being treated. Read my post about the walk.
