Episode Description

In this instalment of our special series Spotlight on Coronavirus, we focus on the emotions and feelings that cancer patients and caregivers might experience as they cope with the impact of the spread of coronavirus. Many cancer patients and caregivers are reporting feeling alone, anxious, and fearful of the future. Our guests help put context to our feelings and share strategies to help us cope. We are joined by Jamie Aten, a disaster expert who was faced with his own personal disaster when he was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer at the age of 35 and Susan Ash-Lee, Vice President of Clinical Services for the Cancer Support Community.
