Episode 2 – Julie Neville: “I was diagnosed with skin cancer during covid.”

An intimate chat with Julie Neville – fitness enthusiast, entrepreneur, master organiser, and wife of football star Philip Neville. The interview reveals that during the pandemic she was diagnosed with an aggressive form of skin cancer and received emergency treatment during the family’s move to Miami.

Speaking of the diagnosis and how she kept it from everyone, including family and friends, Julie said: “I’ve never talked about this. If any of my friends that hear this now … the phone is going to be ringing saying ‘oh my God, you drive us mad. You never tell anybody anything. We don’t know if you’re happy or you’re sad.”

She went on to describe the moment she found out the news: “Within an hour of him (Phil) landing in Miami I got the call to say it was an aggressive cancerous tumour in my face and that I needed to go to the Christie’s and have it removed.”
