Oxford Initiate – Breakfast Talk with John Wilkinson

We would like to invite you to our Oxford Initiate Morning Breakfast Talk on Thursday 26 September at our  Oxford office. This will be a special occasion for you to meet John Wilkinson and hear his insightful, inspirational and honest story about his battle against cancer.

John had a very aggressive, large and very rare cancerous tumour that had taken residence in his face. John underwent more than 30 hours of life-changing maxillofacial surgery across several operations, received almost 400 stitches and then endured other treatments such as radiotherapy and chemotherapy.

Whilst recovering from the shock of the first operation, John had an epiphany. He wished to help others facing cancer, raise awareness of Head & Neck Cancer and give something back, a “thank you” to those who had saved him.

John is the author of the book, Face Cancer, where he tells the story of his journey from diagnosis to the present day. He offers advice about work-life balance and encourages the wellbeing of all busy employees, recommending some simple things to look out for.

John’s book will be available to purchase on the day. Please note that all net proceeds are directed to Cancer fighting charities such as the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, Macmillan Cancer Support and Cancer Research UK, who have each endorsed its publication.
