Cancer Companion Podcast: Episode 1

Even though people with cancer undergo a variety of different treatments, the side effects of these treatments aren’t always well understood. From speaking with you – the cancer community – we know that many of you experience Chemo Brain. And often, you experience it without even knowing what it is.

You aren’t going mad – and you aren’t alone. Tune in for helpful tips and information about managing chemo brain.

On this week’s episode: 

  • We talk about chemo brain with Lydia Donaldson, a friend and colleague who has been exploring the effects of cancer treatment on the brain.
  • Sarah-Jane Phillips, author of Worms on Parachutes, and a two-time cancer survivor, speaks to us about the best ways to cope with cancer, and the value of writing as a therapeutic practice.
