    In our latest podcast, we spoke to Alex Simpson about her diagnosis and life with leukaemia as part of our #SpotLeukaemia campaign.

    Alex had just moved to Hong Kong when her symptoms appeared, but she put them down to working long hours and her hectic new life abroad.

    After a search on Google brought up leukaemia, Alex booked an appointment with her GP, a decision that saved her life.

Great content

As a parent to a child receiving treatment for ALL I have really enjoyed the podcast which is informative and topical. I find the audio has a bit of a echo and wonder if the use of a proper studio or microphone could improve it. I especially enjoyed the episode of the depiction of people with leukaemia, and cancer more broadly, in movies and books extremely interesting. The discussion was sensitively covered. Well done. I think that this series should be continued.

Listened to April’s podcast, which was great. Good to hear about other people’s journeys and how they manage life with leukaemia. Thank you as always for the humour, the life stories and the support...

Leukaemia needs this

Great to see a Podcast on all issues relating to Leukaemia... it’s very isolating as a patient so this podcast is very much needed
