Handbook lady ,

Thanks for the honesty

I love the honesty and chatty style of this show - it seems like a bunch of friends chatting almost casually about a really serious subject. I don’t have friends currently going through Breast Cancer and I haven’t had chats with anyone who knows what I’m going through so it’s great to listen to you. Have you done any episodes about HER2+ and Herceptin treatment? Thanks 😀

Love this pod

I started listening to this after I lost my Dad to cancer and I have found it so helpful for me in so many ways. The word cancer is so scary but I feel I know and understand so much more and love the banter on the show. Keep up the amazing work guys. Xx
