Sarcoma Awareness Month – The important role of the carer

ANZSA begin their Sarcoma Awareness Month webinar series with an in-depth look at the role of the carer.

Mandy Basson, Managing Director of Sock it to Sarcoma, and Associate Professor Georgia Halkett will join ANZSA Consumer Advisory Panel member, Karen Laurati in shining the light on an area which is so often overlooked.

Mandy is well -versed with the often unmet needs of the carer, having been by her daughter Abbie’s side from diagnosis and throughout her treatment, then continuing her daughter’s vision to make a profound difference in the lives of sarcoma patients.

The organisation has provided over a decade of support to patients, families and carers and continues to to provide an important resource for those sarcoma patients who need it most.

Associate Professor Georgia Halkett will bring her highly professional perspective to the table, after the release of her recent research paper earlier this year – The unmet needs of carers of patients diagnosed with sarcoma: A qualitative study.

If you or a family member is a carer for a sarcoma patient, this is a webinar not to be missed.

Unmet needs for patient support in rare cancers

Christine Cockburn, Patient Care Co-ordinator with Rare Cancers Australia shares her vast experience on addressing the unmet needs of those who live with a rare cancer. She will be joined by ANZSA Consumer Advisory Panel member Karen Laurati, who knows this road well, having been diagnosed with sarcoma, undergone treatment, and now enters survivorship, and a very new phase of her life.

Christine leverage her vast experience with a broad cross section of rare cancers, to provide compelling insight into an area that has the propensity to be overlooked, from treatment and throughout diagnosis. This will be balanced by Karen’s invaluable patient perspective, having lived the nightmare of a sarcoma diagnosis.

If you are a patient diagnosed with a rare cancer, in particular sarcoma, or a carer/family member, this webinar will be an extremely useful tool in finding additional resources which may potentially assist you.
