We are Mari, Pamela and Dawn Duthie and we set up baccas (bowel and colon cancer awareness ) in 2007 1 year after the death of my husband the girls dad Rev. Dr. George Duthie.
He put up a good fight for 4 years but it was too far advanced when he was first diagnosed.
We did not want his death to be in vain so we hope in time to raise enough money to have research into this cancer and hope some day to get a cure for it.
The aim of baccas is to raise awareness of this cancer ain time to get a cure so no other family will go through the heartbreak that we did.
As he was such a fun loving person and loved to make lovely coloured drinks for family and friends we thought it would be a good idea to try and have fun cocktail parties to money and awareness.
We are now 5 instead of 3 because Dawn has 2 lovely children. Taylor a lovely little girl and James a lovely little boy.They will grow up never knowing their Grandad. He would have loved them so much and had so much fun with them, So please if you are over 50 and get the screening kit please do it and send it back and also help us to raise awareness.
