CTRL, ALT, DELETE Podcast: #170 Deborah James

The amazing Deborah James is a campaigner and co-presenter of the top-charting podcast You, Me and the Big C, which takes listeners through every twist and turn, showing how you can still live your life and be yourself with cancer.

Deborah was a deputy head teacher before at the age of 35, being diagnosed with bowel cancer and her life with her young children and husband was thrown upside down. She’s had 4 major operations including bowel and lung resections and multiple rounds of chemo – and is still undergoing treatment at the Royal Marsden. She started a blog called ‘Bowel Babe’ to debunk the myth that young women don’t get bowel cancer and writes a weekly column for the Sun online, “Things Cancer Made Me Say”. She campaigns alongside major UK cancer charities, writes and presents the popular podcast ‘You, Me & the Big C’ for BBC’s Radio 5 Live, and has a built up a strong following on Instagram, please follow her: @bowelbabe.

Debora’s book ‘F**k You Cancer’ is out now, an inspiring cancer guide that encourages you to shout #F*CKYOUCANCER.

“I’m the vegetarian who got bowel cancer at 35. On paper, I should never have ever got bowel cancer.”

I found this episode so inspiring and moving and informative and I hope you do too.
