John Longmire / Sydney Swans Coach

Since 2011 John Longmire has been the coach of the Sydney Swans.

John’s mother was diagnosed with bowel cancer at age 58. She fought hard but sadly passed away in 2012 at age 63.

If they had their time again, John would have had a conversation around the dinner table with the family to break down the myths around screening and normalise doing the test.

John urges all families to have a conversation about bowel screening and when the kit from the NBCSP arrives in the mail when you turn 50, to make sure you do it!
