Breast Cancer and Work – Episode 10

Posted by victoria on 20 September 2021

How does a breast cancer diagnosis affect your work? Will you be treated sympathetically or seen as a “problem”? In this episode, Victoria talks to three women about their jobs and how they handled them before, during and after treatment. A QC gives advice on what happens when your boss isn’t as compassionate as they should be and what action you can take. 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.
