A Theory of Mind

30-03-2021 • 42 mins

Just a few months after retuning home from a deployment to Afghanistan where he served as a rifleman, Matt 'Willy' Williams AM started suffering persistent headaches. After a few trips to the doctors and few scans, Willy discovered that something malignant was living in his brain; something he would be living with for the rest of his life. Instead of falling into a depressive state the then 22-year-old went to work, dedicating himself to managing his condition, but also fundraising for brain cancer research, Now three years later we talk to Willy about his head, his state of mind and his incredible resilience.
