Challenging Cancer Treatment on World Cancer Day
Today, 4th February, marks World Cancer Day. A day to unite on the fight against cancer in a world where one in two of us will receive a diagnosis in our life time. For some, this will come far too soon as over 2200 young people are diagnosed with cancer every year.
Our Personal Care Manager, Sophie Trew, 25, from Hampshire is well aware of the statistics. In 2013, at the young age of 23, she was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Following six months of chemotherapy, she is now in recovery. In 2015 Sophie founded Trew Talks, an initiative that aims to encourage discussion about ways to challenge cancer. Each week she posts a new video covering topics such as nutrition, natural healing and mindfulness, all based on her own experiences. Explaining her motivation for starting the blog, Sophie said:
“The amount of people dying from cancer around me and the lack of information inspired me to start Trew Talks. I’m sharing everything that worked for me on a variety of topics in different videos over the next year calling the series 52 Ways to Challenge Cancer.”
