In this month’s podcast we hear the story of Little Star Poppy Guilder, who was first diagnosed with cancer when she was just fourteen months old.
Poppy’s mum Lisa talks frankly about the family’s experience, from “the day it felt their world had stopped” to Poppy’s courage in coping with chemotherapy and surgery.
On the science side, we hear how researchers in Cambridge are using high-tech imaging techniques to find out if cancer drugs are working, and Professor Richard Begent explains the latest advances in targeted treatment.
