Ever wondered about breast density or what patient advocacy is all about?

In this episode of 'Cancer and You' I am delighted to bring to you my conversation with breast density advocate Siobhán Freeney. We cover 2 important topics:

Part 1 (first 18 minutes): Breast density matters - whether you have breast cancer or not! Siobhán explains why, and how to get the information you need.

Part 2 (18 minutes onwards):  How do you get into advocacy - for yourself or others? Siobhán shares with us her personal path and top tips.
