Beyond Diagnosis & Treatment

Xylon van Eyck – Facebook Live Session – ‘Reimagining and cancer’

CANSA was honoured to host ‘Reimagining and cancer’ featuring cancer survivor Xylon Van Eyck with Mentor and Life Coach Sean Daly on a Facebook Live session on Friday 26 June 2020. This was the latest in a series of lunchtime webinars hosted on CANSA’s Facebook Page, with the aim of featuring speakers who can offer information and advice to help cancer patients and those affected by cancer.

If you missed the live session, watch it here:

Xylon van Eyck, entrepreneur, former TV presenter and keen cyclist, has worked for media outlets like SuperSport, 5FM, Kaya FM and Algoa FM. A keen cyclist himself, working daily with professional athletes, he’s probably the last person you’d expect to be diagnosed with a cancer like non-Hodgkins lymphoma. He certainly didn’t see it coming. After undergoing two years of treatment including 16 sessions of chemotherapy, a stem cell transplant and radiation Xylon has been in remission since 2014.
