Early detection

Hugo Toovey is a young ambassador for the Jodie Lee Foundation and a Captain in the Australian Army.

In 2013, his life drastically changed when he was diagnosed with testicular cancer. This resulted in surgery to remove his testicle, months of chemotherapy, and very invasive surgery to remove all of his abdominal lymph nodes.

In 2018 Hugo was diagnosed with bowel cancer. This resulted in weeks in hospital and 2 major operations – which included having his colon removed which was riddled with cancer.

Hugo wants to raise awareness to others that they are not invincible and a simple check up at the doctor’s may just save their life.
