YOU CANcervive Podcast is a podcast that has been launched as part of the Cancer SMART initiative.
Developed through a partnership between ourselves and West Yorkshire and Harrogate Cancer Alliance, the YOU CANcervive - Let's Talk Cancer podcast is designed, produced and voiced by people directly affected by cancer.
The thought-provoking podcasts are designed to encourage people to talk more openly and freely about cancer, its signs and symptoms and how they can reduce their risk.
The podcast is the brainchild of Cancer Champions Arzoo Dar of Dewsbury who experienced bone cancer as a child, and Rob Husband from Huddersfield, who has been treated for head and neck cancer and whose story features in YOU CANcervive episode one.
They were keen to find a way of reaching everyone, not just those who have survived cancer or experienced it themselves, but also for those who could find themselves touched by cancer in their lifetime. Each episode is based on one of the key messages, using patients stories to illustrate.
The Cancer SMART key messages are:
- Screening saves lives by prevention and early detection
- Making cancer an everyday conversation
- Awareness of unusual and persistent changes
- Reduce risk with a healthy active lifestyle
- Take action NOW against cancer
