Molan makes good on her sis­ter pact

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - ARMS DEALS - PHIL ROTHFIELD

CHAN­NEL 9 star Erin Molan has posed for an ad­ver­tis­ing cam­paign to raise money and aware­ness for bowel can­cer, the disease that al­most took the life of her sis­ter.

The NRL pre­sen­ter re­cently did a photo shoot for Ap­ple Stem Cells on the con­di­tion the skin care com­pany do­nated $1 from the sale of their prod­ucts to bowel can­cer re­search.

The ad­ver­tise­ments will ap­pear in Vogue and Marie Claire. “Aware­ness is ev­ery­thing,” Molan said.

“At school we learn ‘slip slop slap’ for skin can­cer, we learn not to smoke for lung can­cer, in high school we learn to check our breasts for breast can­cer — but no one talks about bowel can­cer. It can be gross to talk about, so peo­ple don’t.

“My sis­ter Sarah was 27 when she was di­ag­nosed with stage four bowel can­cer.

“It was con­sid­ered an old per­son’s disease and we nearly lost her. We were so close to find­ing it too late.”

Molan made a pact with her sis­ter at the time of her surgery that they would de­vote their lives to rais­ing aware­ness of bowel can­cer.

It is why she signed up as an am­bas­sador for Bowel Can­cer Aus­tralia.
