‘I would never consider myself a hero’. Irfon Williams from Bangor became a familiar face in the Welsh media when he made the decision to openly discuss his diagnosis of bowel cancer. His intention was to raise awareness of the disease, but he achieved so much more than that. This is the story of one man's personal journey as he faced cancer – and the story of his brave public battle to ensure a fair playing field for patients and their families throughout Wales.
