Dr Jodie Fleming was a clinical and health psychologist who specialised in the field of psycho-oncology - the human side of cancer. In 2010 at the age of thirty-seven, she receives the terrifying news that she has two primary breast cancers. This becomes a frightening opportunity to practice what she preaches.

The doctor becomes the patient.

Having cared for her husband with testicular cancer eight years earlier and dedicating her career to helping others with cancer, Jodie understands the role of caregiver both on a personal and professional level. The role of patient, however is another matter. The diagnosis comes exactly one month after the end of her marriage.

Join us in conversation with Jodie as we hear her journey from terrifying diagnosis to a cancer free future. 

Registrations are essential - register online or by calling 08 6820 3600.
