James McNaught, founder of Cancer On Board, is my first guest on the 100+ Podcast! James was diagnosed with tonsil cancer in 2014 and had intensive radiotherapy. When travelling across London on the tube every day of the week, to treatment, he made a joke to a friend about wearing one of the Transport For London ‘Baby On Board’ badges so he would be offered a seat. He then realised this was actually a really good idea, and printed 100 copies of the TFL badge, but swapping ‘Baby’ for ‘Cancer’. Cancer On Board. He handed these out. Then TFL got in touch, and said as long as they weren’t being sold, that was okay. But this tied the idea to London. So they rebranded the badge and launched it as a charity. Since meeting James in almost a year ago now, I have used his symbol throughout the 100 Stories Book. A symbol which might one day symbolise cancer. Follow @canceronboard and go to canceronboard.org to get hold of a badge.
