Dr Jodie Fleming

Hunter Breast Cancer Foundation invites you to join author, Dr Jodie Fleming for a conversation on the couch with long-time friend and past Vice President of HBCF, Michelle Faithfull, as she launches her memoir ‘A Hole in My Genes’ at 48 Watt Street on 13th October 2019 – 3pm – 5pm.

Jodie is a clinical and health psychologist currently practising in South West Victoria. She spent eight years living in Newcastle and previously worked in the field of psycho-oncology (the human side of cancer) before being diagnosed with two primary breast cancers.

The journey that followed, became a frightening opportunity to practice what she preached.

The doctor became the patient.

What unfolded was the epitome of complicated grief and a foray into the world of cancer from the other side of the desk. Forced to draw upon the psychological strategies she’d previously taught her clients, Jodie began her true education.

Come along and hear about Jodie’s journey from that terrifying diagnosis to a cancer free future.
