Breast Cancer Ireland launches ‘More Than A Lump’ podcast
Breast Cancer Ireland, the leading breast cancer charity in the country, has launched a podcast entitled ‘More Than A Lump’
Developed with a view to highlighting the utterly unique and compelling stories of some of those touched by the disease in one way or another, the podcast will air for the first time on Thursday 24th March, and demonstrates through raw honesty, humour and sometimes sadness, the real-life stories behind the disease and the myriad of ways in which a diagnosis can impact on the wider support circle of friends and loved ones.
Guests on the first series of the podcast include Professor Arnold Hill, one of Ireland’s leading breast surgeons and chairman of Breast Cancer Ireland, Health Coach and Wellness Speaker, Georgie Crawford and her mum Siobhan, BCI Patient Supporter and male breast cancer survivor Dara McDonough, and BCI Ambassador, teacher and new mum Emma Cassidy amongst others.
Speaking about the launch, Aisling Hurley, CEO of Breast Cancer Ireland, said “A diagnosis of breast cancer can cause a lifechanging ripple effect of impact, affecting those we love the most and those upon whom we lean, for comfort and strength in the most challenging of times. This new podcast talks openly and honestly to a selection of guests about their very personal connections to breast cancer – be it through their career choice, their own first-hand experience of the disease, or through sharing the experience of close family members. My conversations will centre on how breast cancer has informed their perspective on life, love, family, health, their goals, and aspirations. Although each story is utterly unique, the one common thread that runs through each one, is that breast cancer – is more than a lump”
The podcast is entirely free and available to download across all of the usual channels.
