You, Me and the Big C: Putting the can in cancer

Thursday, 11 April

Lauren Mahon and Steve Bland join Deborah James at the Royal Marsden Hospital as Debs goes in for an operation for the ablation of her liver tumours. We hear from Consultant Interventional Radiologist, Dr Nicos Fotiadis and Consultant Anaesthetist and Dr Torsten Beutlhauser who will be in charge of her procedure. Also Steve and Lozza go meet Mr Declan Cahill, a Consultant Urological Surgeon and his team. Declan takes them into his operating theatre as he oversees and performs an actual real life prostatectomy by robotic surgery. They then go and see Debs after her operation and catch up again with Dr Nicos Fotiadis. The whole #youmebigc team would like to thank the Royal Marsden Hospital for providing us with this incredible opportunity.
