69. World Cancer Day

69. World Cancer Day

We probably all know someone who has been affected by cancer, whether directly or indirectly.

Today we shine a light on World Cancer Day.

My Guests are:
- Dr. Lucienne Thommes
- Sarah Kretschmer
- Tobie Brealey

Dr. Lucienne Thommes has been the director of the Cancer Foundation Luxembourg https://www.cancer.lu/fr since 2016. She is also a board member of the European Cancer Leagues. https://www.cancer.eu/

Sarah Kretschmer is a psychologist and psychotherapist working with the Cancer Foundation Luxembourg .

Tobie Brealey describes herself as an apparently-healthy, fit, working mother of three, diagnosed with stage 3 oesophageal cancer in August 2018. She had chemo, radiation and a life-changing surgery here in Luxembourg, and has been cancer-free since then.

In this conversation we talk about the impact of cancer on the patient and the family, what care can be found in Luxembourg, who covers the costs, and so much more.

The Cancer Foundation Luxembourg (Fondation Cancer) have their questionnaire online today to be filled out by those who have had cancer or who have cancer right now. You can find it online and despite it being in French or German you can answer in English.
