I'm involved with a lot of podcasts - that's the joy of running a podcast business. One of the most special I'm involved with is called Purple Rainbow Pancreatic Cancer Podcasts.It comes out monthly and I host it on behalf of North Staffordshire campaigner Lesley Goodburn.I want to share with you an episode of that podcast through this podcast. At the beginning of each episode you hear Lesley talk about why these podcasts exist. They are to raise awareness of Pancreatic Cancer in honour and in memory of her husband Seth.Another way Seth's story is being told is through a play - based on Lesley and Seth's experience using letters Lesley wrote.In this episode Lesley is joined by Siobhan, Steph and another Lesley. They've been using Homeward Bound in a project and it's had a huge impact on those involved.And Lesley also tells us about how the impact has reached the other side of the world too.You can find out more about Purple Rainbow here https://purplerainbow.co.uk/Music Credit Purple Planet StudiosDISCLAIMER:All views, information or opinions expressed in this podcast series are solely my own and those of individuals interviewed and do not necessarily represent the views and opinions of Pancreatic Cancer UK , Pancreatic Cancer Action, Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund And The Elizabeth Coteman Fund The charities and their employees are not responsible for and do not verify the accuracy of any of the information contained in the podcast series.The primary purpose of this podcast series is to inform, but it does not constitute medical or other professional advice or services.
