I am the Editor-in-Chief of Flourish Magazine, a joint venture between integrative cancer care charity Yes to Life and creative health charity Artlift and funded by National Lottery Awards for All, by and for the cancer community. The magazine is created with the support of a steering group that includes people living with cancer and partners Macmillan, Macmillan Next Steps and Gloucestershire Health and Care NHS Foundation Trust. It features a range of creative responses, expert information and interviews in each themed edition that offer support and represent the diversity of the cancer community. The first issue of Flourish Magazine features a range of creative submissions, features and interviews around the theme of ‘Nourish’.
