“Sailing on...This is at the heart of the big question which confronts anyone given a potentially life-threatening diagnosis. There is of course the wish to survive, and then the accompanying thought: what is survivorship for? How does one regain a sense of thriving in this new world opened up by diagnosis? As Bion said (1982, p.128): “The fears can be numberless ‘I see them in the watch-fires of a thousand sleepless nights, for the soul goes marching on’.”

Judith was diagnosed with cancer in 2011 and after the initial shock of diagnosis she set up the site http://www.cansurviving.com which is now an international group built site accessed in 48 countries. In this talk, using her personal story, Judith looks at the concept of survivorship and how post-diagnosis cancer patients can regain their sense of hope and optimism, in
order to carry on with their lives and help others in the process. The site was created in order to try to fill a gap in what was available on the Web, and it links too with Judith’s own work over the years as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist.

The talk will be followed by Q&As and a discussion. Delicious afternoon tea and cake will be served. Gluten and dairy free options can be provided on request. An inspiring and thought-
provoking afternoon in an intimate setting.

Dr Judith Edwards is a psychoanalytic psychotherapist who has worked at the Tavistock
Clinic and elsewhere for over thirty years. She is published internationally, and her Selected
Papers, Love the Wild Swan have been published by Routledge in their World Mental Health
Series. She has also published a memoir: Pieces of Molly: An Ordinary Life, and is the founder
and moderator of http://www.cansurviving.com
