'Be a pleasant squeaky wheel…come empowered, have questions to ask and deliver them in a pleasant way', says Anthony.
For Anthony Ellison, exercise and a healthy lifestyle were front and centre in his life, so when he was diagnosed with stage 4 bowel cancer, three days shy of his 40th birthday, he was knocked for a six. Three years later, Anthony’s positive outlook and drive to challenge the norm, sees him tackling the cancer head on.
Anthony and Stephanie discuss the impact of exercise, both physically and mentally, and how early on he decided to find what was within his control and not just control it, but dominate it - 'Exercise is my happy place!'
Anthony also chats about the importance of having an allied health team and how sessions with his psychologist allow him to walk lighter and to provide him with direction without burdening his loved ones.
