Tatum was 35 when diagnosed with cancer while living in Los Angeles. Four months later her mum was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Tatum immediately switched hats from patient to carer and returned to London to support her mum in her final months. Tatum’s younger sister has learning disabilities and needs 24-hour support, so Tatum stayed in the UK to be her sister’s voice, advocate and, at times, full-time carer.
Her eclectic background is in presenting, training, acting and yoga so she used these skills to create the podcast Not Your Grandma’s Cancer Show, facilitating workshops for Shine Cancer Support and becoming a relaxation specialist. She is delighted to be part of the Bridges team and share her lived experiences in cancer, menopause and being a carer.
As a team we share the same ethos and philosophy that drives our passion to create the best experience and environment for patients to live well. Bridges provide opportunities for both patients and professionals to work collaboratively to enhance self-management skills, knowledge and confidence.
