Julie has just completed the most important interviews of her life. In 2013 she was given the shocking news that she had stage four throat cancer. Over seven years later she is alive after 30 radiation sessions, weekly chemo and months of care from a big team.
In partnership with St Vincent’s Hospital Sydney, The Kinghorn Cancer Centre & St Vincent’s Private Hospital, Julie has produced the Head & Neck Cancer 2020 Video Series to hear from cancer team members & patients about treatment & recovery.
These up-to-the minute, evidence-based interviews are filmed in radiation bunkers, operating theatres and research centres. They showcase the latest technology and the committed group of doctors, nurses and allied health professionals who make recovery possible.
