Description

Content warning: This episode contains references to hair loss, amputation, and weight fluctuations.

This week, we're talking to Sarah. She was supported by the Trust while in recovery from osteosarcoma, a diagnosis which led to her leg being amputated when she was 16, along with other changes to her body. Now in her mid-20s, Sarah shares her story by giving talks to school pupils and other young people. 

Talking to Sound Waves, she tells of being a teenager who found these physical changes tough, to becoming someone with ownership over her relationship with her body. Along the way, she's taken part in lots of exciting opportunities, such as modelling for a high street clothing brand. We're grateful she shared her story with us here.
