About Today’s Guest Joanna Dolan
Owner and Founder of Righting Writing
Jo is a professional editor who works with clients from around the world to ‘prettify their prose’.
Joanna Dolan talks about the process of having a child die of cancer, how it impacts the whole family, the general lack of support available for carers in this situation and how she’s helping families uncover their real medical history.
In the ten years since Kate’s death, Jo’s started to turn her own experiences and insights into a way of helping and supporting other people going through the same kind of thing: being careers to their sick child.
She’s now coming up with her final qualifications as a life coach as well as setting up a website.
Her intention is to help people record their stories for two reasons:
Firstly to hope to share them with their children or grandchildren.
But at the very least to record family medical history so that medical professionals have every piece of medical information that they might need.
