Megan Cruise joined World Child Cancer as our Psychosocial Support Advisor in 2018 after spending a year volunteering in our programmes across Ghana, Malawi and Myanmar. Megan is a trained counsellor with vast experience and a passion for counselling young people who have cancer and their families. Her career history includes working for ten years at the UK’s largest cancer charity for children, CLIC Sargent.
Having spent a significant amount of time directly supporting families who have a child with cancer in developing countries, Megan has seen the enormous impact childhood cancer has on every aspect of family life. Whilst working at World Child Cancer she aims to increase families' access to the emotional, practical and social support they so desperately need and deserve. She feels passionately about families receiving holistic care and about support for healthcare professionals who work with families, often doing highly stressful and emotionally challenging jobs.
Outside of work Megan enjoys travel, exploring new areas of London with friends, swimming and sewing!
