'A social worker looks at the person wholistically both the physical as well as the social aspects affecting your health,' says Victoria.

Victoria has recently joined the Bowel Cancer Australia team as a Bowel Care Oncology Social Worker.

Her compassion shines through as she chats to Stephanie about the importance of looking after your wellbeing and all the aspects that impact your life while navigating your bowel cancer journey.

Offering practical tips from how to communicate with your family to financial and work-related questions, Victoria explains how access to a social worker can provide a scaffold, to support you through your diagnosis, treatment and beyond.
