Breast Cancer and Community – Episode 04

Posted by victoria on 20 September 2021

What happens when you’ve been diagnosed with breast cancer but some people in your community choose to deal with it with prejudice and disinformation? In this episode, three women talk to Victoria about the different reactions they received from their neighbours and their nearest and dearest and how they weren’t always helpful or understanding. The answer, as we hear in this edition, is for more and more women to form their own support communities. Brought to you by the Future Dreams breast cancer charity, “And Then Came Breast Cancer” is for everyone whose lives have been touched by the disease. You can contact us at podcast@futuredreams.org.uk for help and advice and Victoria is @VicDerbyshire on Twitter and Instagram. If you have been touched by breast cancer – Future Dreams is here to help

Donate to those touched by BREAST cancer

Sylvie and Danielle began Future Dreams with just £100 in 2008. They believed nobody should face breast cancer alone.  Their legacy lives on in Future Dreams House.  We couldn’t continue to fund support services for those touched by breast cancer, raise awareness of breast cancer and promote early diagnosis and advance research into secondary breast cancer without your help.
