“My mum was diagnosed with liver cancer in 2007, and I remember it as if it were yesterday. I remember the day she first went to hospital, and I remember at age 13 pushing my mum around in a wheelchair after one of her surgeries. The cancer returned four years later, this time in her stomach. In October 2013 we were told her cancer was terminal, and the news completely broke me. This was three...

“What I love most about my job is that it’s always evolving. There’s always new techniques to study or more in-depth information to find out – it’s great to always be pushing the boundaries of human knowledge and explore territories that no one’s ever gone before. Right now, I’m working on a project involving pancreatic cancer that’s looking to find proteins which specifically affect a process...

“A cancer diagnosis is one of the hardest things a person can face, and I’m constantly overcome with the strength and determination so many of my patients show during treatment. Although as a researcher and cancer surgeon I understand the importance of research, it’s heart-warming that so many of our patients also share our passion. Even though these women know that participation in research...

“In this photo I’m trying to choose a wig to wear after chemotherapy. I know hair loss is a huge thing for some people, but it wasn’t really for me. I don’t get upset about not having it at all. The wig is mainly about what I want to share with the world. Hair loss is a very visible indicator that you are the poorly person with cancer. I didn’t want to be setting off that signal, I wanted to...

Right now, I’m on my final phase of chemotherapy, and treatment is due to...
