The Cancer Survivor Guide

Katherine Lane

The Cancer Survivor Guide takes you through a cancer diagnosis and what might happen next. Using interviews with the experts; oncologists, surgeons, nurses and survivors, it covers the main treatments including surgery, chemotherapy and radiation.  

The first podcast – “Call Someone” features two of our very own – Katherine Lane and Craig Morton from our expert team of cancer nurses on 13 11 20. Their message is simple; there are no silly questions, all you need to do is ask.

This podcast series has been designed and created by the Grampians Integrated Cancer Service Consumer Advisory Group (CAG), a group of dedicated volunteers who have had cancer, or cared for someone with cancer. Their aim is to make the experience of having cancer as good as it can be.
