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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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
Sylvie and Danielle began Future Dreams with just £100. Since then we have raised over £6.5m. We couldn’t do any of this without you. Please donate, if we all act now we believe that by 2050 everyone who develops breast cancer will live.
