    About Panorama Part 1: Kelly's Story

    Kelly Smith, known on social media as Kickass Kell, talks to Deborah, Lauren and Steve about her cancer treatment during the coronavirus pandemic. We also hear from Kelly's mum Mandy who was caring for her.

    Ten days after recording, Kelly sadly died.

    Parts of this podcast were filmed for a special Panorama documentary called 'Britain's Cancer Crisis', where Deborah investigates fears that the coronavirus pandemic could cause a crisis in cancer care in the UK, how the NHS has managed cancer care during lockdown and she meets more fellow patients to discover what the pandemic has meant for them.

    Gamechangers: Leanne Pero

    Gamechangers: Leanne Pero

    Before lockdown, we'd started to record a new series speaking to gamechangers in the cancer community. Our first recording was with Leanne Pero and Charlotte Crowl, but due to Covid-19 everything was put on hold.

    In this episode we catch up with Leanne. You'll hear the original recording from back in early March, alongside her thoughts of what's happened and changed since.

    Leanne and Charlotte do a new podcast called 'Black Women Rising: The Untold Cancer Stories' where you can find out more about their amazing work - it's available in all the usual podcast places.

    We aim to return to the cancer gamechangers series in the next few episodes, so if there's someone making a difference in your cancer community please tell us all about them by using #youmebigc across all forms of social media.

    This episode is dedicated to our dear friend (and previous guest on the pod) Saima Thompson.
