Emma Leach

HR Manager back at work after cancer treatment

Emma Leach is HR Manager for an international real estate company based in central London. She underwent treatment for ovarian cancer in 2011, returning to work in 2012.

Recently she has been involved in a campaign spearheaded by the Maggie's Cancer Caring Centres and Unum, which aims to help employees and employers in receiving the support they need in handling a cancer diagnosis.

Emma’s role at work combined with her personal experience of the cancer journey give her a unique perspective on both sides of the issue.

Working After Cancer

You might think that work would be the last thing on my mind, but when your life has been shattered by a cancer diagnosis, stability in other aspects of life becomes paramount and work can play a pivotal role in shaping your routine, your relationships and your identity.
