My name is Karen Liesching-Schroder and I was diagnosed with tongue cancer 8 years ago at the age of 43.


I’ve always worked in education, with children aged 3 and 4 years until January this year when I had to leave due to the late effects of radiotherapy, so I no longer work.


I’m a Patient Ambassador for the Mouth Cancer Foundation which takes up a lot of time supporting patients and family members.In my free time I enjoy running and spending time with my family and close friends.
