Jodi’s story – relocating for cancer treatment

  • Jodi-cancer-mum-story

For many people, a cancer diagnosis also means relocating for treatment.

Jodi was living with her son Trystan and her four other children in Alberton, regional Tasmania when he was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia.

Trystan was only three at the time of his diagnosis. After a year of intensive treatment Trystan still hadn’t reached remission. Jodi was separated from her other children and had to stay in a flat in Hobart. For 12 months, Jodi was running two different households across the state.

She shares her story of diagnosis, treatment and remission in this Redkite video series below.
