I spoke with Megan Simpkins, a 54 year old originally from Australia who volunteers for Dimbleby Cancer Care. In 2012 Megan was diagnosed with Stage 1 Cancer of the womb.
Listen to the interview below:
Dimbleby Cancer Care was set up in 1966 following the untimely death at 52, from cancer, of Richard Dimbleby, one of Britain’s most loved broadcasters. Dimbleby Cancer Care was set up in memory of Richard Dimbleby.
The main focus of Dimbleby Cancer Care is the care of people with cancer, and those of their families and carers. The charity works closely with staff at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals in London.
After having an operation Megan came across the services Dimbleby Cancer Care provide. In this podcast Megan tells us about how she felt when she was diagnosed with cancer and her experiences with Dimbleby Cancer Care both as a recipient of the services they provide and as a volunteer. Megan also tells us about when she spoke at 10 Downing Street in front of Samantha Cameron, and her dream of meeting The Queen.
