Living so far from town is often one of the perks that draws people to work on a cattle station. When you live out bush you can enjoy wide open spaces and often your neighbours are tens of kilometres away, if not hundreds.

But what happens when you need services which are only provided in town – like, access to a hospital?

In this episode Steph Coombes sat down with Jodie Grant to discuss her experience not only fighting cancer while living on a cattle station, but the challenges of getting a diagnosis in the first place – and the effect of living remotely impacted her experience.
