A new cancer podcast offering support to residents in South East NSW is now available, the 10 episode series is a deep dive into treatments, hope, life and loss.

John O’Neill was diagnosed with advanced brain cancer in May 2018 and had trouble finding information that openly addressed the crisis he was facing.

“Searching for information in the wake of an advanced cancer diagnosis is a daunting task at the best of times,” John says.

“The facts and figures are out there, but hardly anything discusses the more personal and social issues that linger around the disease.”

Cancer Council NSW hopes to turn that around with this new podcast series – The Thing About Advanced Cancer. Hosted by cancer survivor and broadcaster, Julie McCrossin, the ten episodes feature interviews with both cancer experts and people with a lived experience of advanced cancer and explore the practical as well as the existential issues that people may face.

Julie says there is a focus on the challenges surrounding a diagnosis of advanced cancer.

“Coming from a radio background I know the power of the spoken word and the podcast is a perfect vehicle for this kind of information,” she says.
