I am a busy lady that wears a multitude of hats, step-mum, daughter, wife, sister, grandma, aunty, friend, sister-in-law and confidante to all. I am also a carer for my husband Les, who was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer in October 2020.
Honestly, the first 4 months were a blur of tests, doctors appointments and then the realisation of the diagnosis. This news certainly did not fit into our life plans! But all of a sudden it was our new reality and it needed to be accepted.
I understand not everyone has the skillset to search for what they are looking for or know what they are needing to know.
I am fortunate that I love to learn and research and when I started talking to people in the health care system, I found there is a heap of information available to us, but it is just not shared or communicated effectively.
That's why I put this short course together, via my online bfree2be School. I am not reinventing the wheel as there is so much good stuff out there, I just want to help point carers in the right direction and kind of give you a starting point.
I hope you find this course valuable and wish you all the love and support needed as you too continue on your journey!
