18 months after a diagnosis of bowel cancer, Julie Walters shares her story. Known for her roles in Mama Mia and Harry Potter, the star had surgery and chemotherapy to treat stage 3 bowel cancer. She initially went to see her doctor with discomfort, but returned when it changed to pain.
She didn't share her diagnosis until after she was given the all clear, and missed the Mama Mia premiere giving a different reason for her inability to attend. It's so important to reduce the stigma surrounding bowel cancer and celebrities like Julie Walters help to do just this.
