Jill Emberson is getting married two months after finishing her latest bout of palliative chemotherapy. She was freshly in love and stimulated at work when she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Nine months later, she was told she’d be lucky to be alive in five years. We all know we’ll die one day, but what’s it like to live life with death in sight? And how does it feel to have a terminal illness from the very cradle of life, our ovaries?

Incredibly strong woman you are, Jill Emberson. I heard you speaking last night, podcast straight on in the car on the way home, and this morning I’ve just finished listening to all 5 of your podcasts.

Essential Listening

This is such an important podcast to raise awareness of Ovarian Cancer. Jill is amazing to put herself out in the public spotlight at such a time of vulnerability and uncertainty but does so in order to help other women - what an amazing person. Thank you for this podcast!
