Avril Chester - the IT genius behind Cancer Central - on her inspiration to create a one-stop shop for cancer services

 

For this month of September, I have some real treats lined up for you here! 

It’s been a real pleasure to interview a range of different people who are all doing incredible things in this world with their gifts, and all because of their experience with cancer - either their own or that of a family member. 

Get ready to be inspired…

First up, we have the amazing Avril Chester from Cancer Central - a groundbreaking and award-winning new digital platform providing a central source of information for those affected by cancer and those who care for them. If you have a question, or want to find local services, Cancer Central is THE place to go. 

Ave (the AI bot who answers your questions) is constantly learning and evolving - with every question she is asked, she learns and develops better search capabilities, so every day Cancer Central becomes a more and more powerful resource.

Founder and creator, Avril Chester, tells us about how it all began, her biggest lessons from her experience and the exciting future developments for Cancer Central.

Listen to our interview now by clicking on the video at the top of the page.

#SpeakUpInSeptember 

This month, we’re running a campaign all about patient advocacy inside my free Facebook group, so if you're a professional who works directly with patients and clients, then why not come and join other like-minded heart-centred professionals and learn together how we can better support patients and clients.

Essential Cancer Education exists to make a difference in the lives of those living through the cancer experience indirectly by assisting cancer professionals in engaging their patients and clients with lasting, positive lifestyle changes to reduce secondary cancer risk.

I can’t do this alone, and I believe I’m part of something bigger. A movement of sorts. And I would LOVE to have you join me in this movement. 

If you haven’t already, then do sign up to the mailing list. I’ll keep you posted on news and events that I think might interest you. And I promise not to spam you either! Typically, you can expect to receive one email a week, with some additional surprises now and again when I have something special to share with you that I don’t want you to miss. Sign up here.
