Who is Hugo Toovey?

Hugo Toovey is a 31 year-old Army Captain, Founder of 25 STAY ALIVE, a two-time Cancer Survivor and a Mental Health Advocate.

If you didn’t know Hugo, you would assume that he was your typical everyday young Australian. And yes, from the outside, he appears to be exactly that. However, the last 10 years of his life has been everything BUT normal. He is missing a testicle, part of his reproductive system, all of his abdominal lymph nodes, his large bowel, his rectum and part of his small bowel.

Not only has Hugo survived both testicular cancer and bowel cancer, but he has also had ongoing battles with his mental health. Yet despite all of this, he is more determined than ever to use what he has gone through to save lives.

Hugo is also a proud ambassador for Movember, Gotcha4Life and the Jodi Lee Foundation.
