Author Bio 

Ian Eustace spent many years in the Pharmaceutical Industry promoting treatments for different types of cancer. Through meetings with doctors he came into contact with cancer patients and learned the value of being well informed about a disease such as bowel cancer. His role evolved into communication and education and in 2003 he became a freelance writer specialising in health topics such as cancer. Having seen close friends being diagnosed with, treated for and surviving, bowel cancer, he decided to use the knowledge he had gained over the years to write a practical guide on bowel cancer to document the transformation of what was once a killer disease into a manageable long term condition.

Ian lives with his wife and family in Nottingham.
