Embarrassing Bodies Special

As part of Channel 4’s week of Stand Up To Cancer programming, the Embarrassing Bodies doctors take an emotional medical journey with cancer patients. Dr Christian meets Josh, who tragically lost half his face following the diagnosis of a rare cancer, orbital melanoma. He also meets Danny, who’s been diagnosed with bladder cancer at just 39. Forty-nine-year-old Julie comes to see Dr Dawn having overcome breast cancer eight years ago and hoping to now have her breasts rebuilt with a pioneering technique. And Dr Dawn meets 22-year-old Natalie as she undergoes radiotherapy for cervical cancer. Dr Pixie offers a guide to the pitfalls of bowel cancer. And celebrities share their personal stories of how cancer has affected them; including Peter Andre, Ken Hom, Jenny Frost, John Hartson, Matt Dawson and Dawn Porter.
