An inspiring interview with Ambassador for Bowel Cancer Australia Donna Bauer. The word 'Cancer' is not something anyone wants to hear from their GP, especially when you are only 43 years old and a working mother of four sons, with a busy Political career in an election year. Yet this is what happened to Donna in 2014 when she was diagnosed with Bowel Cancer and had to undergo surgery and chemotherapy. Rather than give into her situation, Donna stayed true to her fighting spirit not only continuing to work, but learning about Bowel Cancer and raising awareness wherever and however she could. What Donna speaks about is a truly inspirational story that has left its mark on everyone around her, including her local community, friends and family.
Listen in as Carolyn shares her experiences returning to University studies with the commencement of a very academically rigorous Psychology Degree. Holistic Nutrition and Wellness Coach, Teacher, Wellness Advocate, Public Speaker and now a student. People all over the world return to study for a variety of reasons and it has never been easier than in this current Modern World where technology helps people to change careers and continue with formal learning as an adult whilst juggling work, family life and other commitments. Don't underestimate the challenges though of changing habits, the expense, finding the time and motivation, plus adapting to being a student again. It is a personal journey and a love of life long learning that is driving and motivating Carolyn.
