The 8,000 mile journey for cancer treatment

A woman from the Falkland Islands has spoken of how a nurse from North West London helped her through a diagnosis for bowel cancer. Andrea Barlow had to travel to London, because medics on the British overseas territories, were unable to provide treatment. Since returning home, she has maintained contact with Manju Khanna, a Macmillan Nurse based at St Mark's in Harrow. We brought the pair face-to-face for the first time since 2014.
