Down to earth with the emotional and mental impact of cancer with psychotherapist Karin Sieger, who has been diagnosed with cancer twice.

If you are affected by cancer you may wonder how others cope. In Part 2 of Cancer Voices we hear from 4 people who have gone through cancer. Rod Ritchie, Sara Liyanage, Diane Leopard and Bruce Gilligan share their advice for those newly diagnosed: what they have learnt about coping with cancer, uncertainty, life and themselves. They are also actively involved in supporting to the community. Find out more about each of them HERE

Cancer changes everything. Christmas, New Year and festive seasons are no exception. How to cope?

This edition of 'Cancer and You' includes questions and comments received from the cancer community about coping with uncertainty during the festive season, wanting to take care of others, feeling isolated and alone at a time which for many is about togetherness. These are just some topics Karin covers in this Christmas edition.
