I have a long term vision for the intersection between cancer and mental health. This is an intersection that is far from as easy to navigate or as supportive as it can be. After my family’s self lived experience of cancer, I have an acute awareness of the emotional isolation a cancer journey can bring. I also know the benefits of counselling and therapy for emotional wellbeing and quality of life.
“Support and be an advocate for a cancer care model that includes emotional wellbeing as an integral part of the care plan.
A cancer care model where everyone – patients, caregivers, and family – have quality options for emotional support clearly available and known to them.”
