War On Cancer podcast: episode 6: Cancer relapses, chemo brain and being a young cancer thriver. In episode 6,  the final episode of season 1, the War On Cancer app founders Fabian and Sebastian meet with UK-based young adult cancer thriver Georgie Swallow.

Georgie was only 26-years-old when she was diagnosed with stage 4 Hodgkin Lymphoma. In the final episode, we’ll get to know Georgie and take part in a heartwarming chat where she shares her story about what it was like to go from living life as your everyday 26-year-old to being thrown into chemotherapy the next. She open-heartedly talks about the challenges of dealing with grieving parents, losing friends and gaining new ones due to cancer, experiencing cancer relapse, scanxiety, chemo brain and ultimately how to turn around going through cancer as a young adult into something that you use as a platform to grow from. And, what is it actually like to be forced into joining a (cancer) club that no one even wishes to join?

“Cancer doesn’t have to mean the end of the world. You can live with cancer, you can still go on and do things,” Georgie Swallow, young adult cancer survivor
