The Aftershock
Welcome to The Aftershock Podcast. We chat about cancer, the word you never want to hear. We speak to a variety of people that have experienced the ripple effect of a cancer diagnosis. Join us as we explore stories of lost loved ones, and speak to the those that have lived experienced with the disease. Hosted by Suz Neate & Kim Landy who both lost their mothers far too young to the insidious disease. The Aftershock is a NFP organisation that raises funds and awareness for high mortality rate cancers. For more information, visit www.theaftershock.org.
The Second Occurrence
Barry Du Bois was enjoying a morning surf when he was hit by a big wave, and heard a sharp crack in his neck. The pain that followed forced him to visit his Doctor, with scans revealing one of his vertebrae had caved in, and was eventually diagnosed with plasmacytoma myeloma. Baz shares with us how his diagnosis changed his life, and overall outlook, especially after the birth of his kids.

The Diagnosis
We speak to Theresa Gallucci who was diagnosed with Cholangiocarcinoma in 2016. Theresa went from living a very healthy lifestyle full of Yoga and Pilates, to sitting across from her oncologist telling her to get her affairs in order immediately. We speak to her about what her diagnosis felt like, the importance of knowing how to take control of your circumstances, and the unknown impacts of being diagnosed with a lesser known cancer.
