“My contribution is to help people manage the psychological aspects of having a cancer diagnosis and treatment. At St George’s Cancer Care Centre we support both our patients and their families. For me it’s all about making a patient’s day a little bit better – to help them think about what’s happening to them in a way that helps them move forward.”
