Lives in Lancashire - Ben's Bowel Movements

He's inspired, he's amazed and this Preston dad has done it all after being told he has terminal bowel cancer.
Meeting someone like Ben Ashworth is an incredible experience.
His positive attitude on life despite the hand he's been dealt is something extraordinary.
So back in 2012 Ben got the horrific news that he has stage four bowel cancer.
But he's defied both the disease and the doctor's predictions and is still with us battling on.
In fact, his first treatment went so well Ben took on the huge challenge of running six marathons in six months to raise money and awareness about the condition he's fighting.
And in typically upbeat and tongue-in-cheek fashion - he called his Facebook page 'Ben's Bowel Movements'
And the dad of three little girls is still continuing to shine a light on the killer disease.
Over Christmas he helped put on the annual Santa Bum Dash in Preston, where Avenham Park goers saw Father Christmas like they'd never seen him before!
And on his Facebook Page - Ben won't give up trying to make more of us aware about the symptoms we should be looking out for.
