In this Would You Believe? Special a group of cancer sufferers and survivors walks the Camino to Santiago de Compostela, the famous pilgrim route across Northern Spain, trying to heal the emotional and mental scars that this life threatening illness has inflicted on them. But this is no ordinary Camino.
The group is led by clinical psychologist, Dr Paul D'Alton, Head of the Psycho-Oncology Department at St Vincent's University Hospital. He is agnostic about religion, but firmly convinced that mindfulness aids emotional and physical healing. Quite simply, he has evidence that it can enable people to lead healthier, happier and longer lives.
