On 11 July 2013, our dear friend, son, brother, Dad and husband, Nathan Scarlett, passed away aged just 37 after a six year battle with bowel cancer.
A BIT ABOUT NATHAN:
Nathan was diagnosed with stage 4 bowel cancer in 2007. Despite an inoperable and incurable prognosis Nath dealt with this huge hurdle with a fighting spirit, positive outlook and a truly contagious zest for life.
Nath’s treatment was incredibly demanding both physically and emotionally yet he never gave up.
Nath never wanted to be defined by his illness. He wanted to make the most of the time he had, relishing every moment he was well enough to enjoy time with his family and friends.
Nath has inspired us to make the most of everyday. WE have been given the gift of good health and it’s in Nath’s honour that this year, we have decided to push our bodies to the MAX.
WHAT WE ARE DOING:
We’ve committed to participating in the Melbourne Marathon on Sunday 12th October 2014. Whether it be 5km, 10km, half marathon or full marathon, we’ve each chosen a distance that will challenge us and require us to stick to a training regime.
We’ll not only be honouring Nath’s memory and improving our own health but we’ll be raising vital funds for Bowel Cancer Australia.
Are you up for the challenge? We’d love you to join us!
