14 - The new normal post cancer treatment

14 - This week's pod is a talk that Hunter gave at Leukaemia Foundation Day in 2013. The talk is about some of the challenges people face when diagnosed, being treated for and recovering from cancer. The core principles of this talk should be applicable to most people as Hunter talks about how to deal with anxiety, changes life circumstances, and how to get the most out of the short time we have. It will also be of interest to anyone who has or had cancer, or knows someone who has, it should also be interesting to listen too to understand how psychologists think about and tackle complex problems that life throws up. 

If you or anyone you know has a blood cancer and would like to receive support please call 1800 620 420 or visit www.leaukaemia.org.au. If you or someone you know would like to support the Leukaemia Foundation in raising much needed funds please call 1800 500 088 – it is always the right time to donate to a cancer charity.
