Tune in to our podcast focusing on the power of storytelling and the positive impact it can have during and after breast cancer treatment.

When Laura was diagnosed with secondary breast cancer, she was told she had two years to live. 11 years later, she is running her own successful blog, Living with Hope and Secondary Breast Cancer. We spoke to Laura about the effect that sharing her story and experience has had on her, and what led to her speaking onstage in front of an audience of hundreds last year. 

I’d found by writing things down it was starting to help me focus more clearly and it also was helping me to stop internalising all of the emotions and feelings that I had... In actual fact by writing things down, in a strange way it helped to reduce the amount of time that I was spending dwelling on my cancer.
