Working Through Illness with Donia Youssef

A recent UK study revealed that 1 in 2 people born after 1960 will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. So how do you best deal with the significant consequences of serious illness if it strikes you, your company employees or family and friends? As I support my own family including father with pancreatic cancer and mother in law with dementia, I have been surprised by how many people in my network are balancing busy working lives with serious illness. My inspiring guest, Donia Youssef, has been through her own heart wrenching battle with cancer while running Tiny Angels a successful London based agency representing babies and children for advertising,fashion,TV,theatre,voice-overs and film castings. She has also written two great books helping people to talk about cancer. Join us to consider the strategies to help deal with serious illness whether it strikes you, your employees or those close to you.

More about Donia Youssef:

Just after celebrating her 39th birthday, Donia Youssef received the devastating news that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer which had spread to her Lymph nodes. With only a 40% chance of survival, Donia faced the prospect of having to tell her children (aged just two and five) that she was sick and could possibly die.

Instead of shutting down, Donia decided to step up to the challenge and play to her strengths, lead her life with a renewed purpose and inspire others to overcome traumatic news, helping families suffering from serious illnesses.

After undergoing treatment, including surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy she is thankfully in full remission. Her experience has given her a powerful new drive to not only live her life to the fullest but to use this precious time to help children suffering from cancer.

Donia plans to use The Monster In Mummy as a platform from which she can help children with cancer to become published authors and to help raise funds for the charities which supported her and her family.

Donia is also the founder of Tiny Angels Ltd – a renowned modelling and acting agency for children.

This requires being fully open […]
