Double cancer survivor Greig Trout talks about the struggles of PTSD and how he beat it

Greig Trout is the founder of 101 Things to do When you Survive, an anti-bucket list list that saw him travel the world. Trout isnt someone you would meet now and realise that he has once suffered severe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Trout is a double cancer survivor, first diagnosed at just aged seven with a stage 4 Wilms tumour, and again at aged 30 but this time with stage 2 bowel cancer. Although he fully recovered from both cancers the psychological effects and fear of the cancer returning were what really took their toll. He spoke to IBTimes UK on Mental Health Awarness Week about his experience. May 9, 2017

This is a 3D reconstruction (by iDISCO) of assembled forebrain spheroids derived from human stem cells. Apr 27, 2017
