Episode 9: Theresa Lake on the reality of cancer and empowering women

Welcome back to our podcast “A Cuppa and A Yarn” brought to you by the New South Wales Aboriginal Land Council. Our guest this week is a woman who’s recently been vaulted into the media spotlight, after making the decision to share her story with cancer.

When Theresa Lake was diagnosed with breast cancer, she had little idea of the enormity of the road she was about to walk. After diagnosis, a promise to “do life differently” led her to agree to appear on the television program “The Time Next Year”, hosted by Karl Stefanovic.

In Episode 5 of A Cuppa and Yarn, Therese talks with host Michelle Aleksandrovics-Lovegrove about why she agreed to allow television cameras to film her at her most vulnerable, what she’s learned and how cancer has changed her life.
