Summer 2008: Visited GP with painful lumpy boob - I had NO idea how long it had been there but do know I had been ignoring symptoms (pain, lump, nipple discharge) for a while, longer than a year.

Beginning her TV career at just 15, Fearne Cotton has been no stranger to experiences many of us can dream of but also those that can be the stuff of nightmares. A story of how a diagnosis of incurable cancer can compel you to live your life more vividly that you could have ever imagined. From founding a charity to visiting Downing Street, campaigning at festivals to appearing on TV, and being present at the birth of her nephew; in the face of all the possible prognoses, Kris is surviving, thriving, and resolutely living.Each week Kris will be joined by a very special guest to learn about their turds, how they came to be and what impact they had, and at the end of the day, how they found the glitter in spite of the turd. In this episode Gareth opens up to Kris about the importance of community, trusting yourself, his struggles with mental health and how looking back became the key to unlocking his future. For some reason there seems to be a "can't be arsed" attitude to even refer people for scans, biopsies, mammograms, ultrasound scans, MRI's. Screengrab or send a post a picture of where you’re listening to Glittering A Turd and tag Kris in on Instagram - www.

I’ve followed the work of Kris Hallenga since I was first diagnosed with cancer and became aware of enthusiastic students bouncing around in giant boob costumes. Kris stepped down as CEO three years ago and now pursues speaking engagements and writing whilst working for Coppafeel! I loved it because there are far too few people talking about cancer and yet so many people who have been or will be diagnosed - and if you have ever come close, a book like this is an absolute dream. In this episode, Laura opens up to Kris about the highs and lows she experienced while living out her ‘blue crush dream’, including a fierce battle with bulimia that consumed her at the height of her years in competitive sport.Radiotherapy to spine commenced, followed by chemo commenced - FEC-T and eventually a left mastectomy followed by chest radiotherapy.

With her experiences she is founder of the Mental Health Media Charter, which looks at how the media report on mental health and a strong advocate for having mental health first aiders in the workplace. Rage at the egotistical, dismissive, offhand, "I know better because I'm a professional type" doctors who won't f**king listen to their patients who know their own bodies best! To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.Sophie is a powerhouse as you’ll hear, but it’s taken a lot of work and reflection to get to where she is today and work on the relationship with herself, her family, her friends and the wider world. Please do follow the podcast so you never miss an episode as it helps other people discover it, as does you telling people! I loved it because it’s full of a very big and wonderful personality who I enjoyed spending 300 plus pages with. Feb told it was secondary breast cancer - it had already spread to my lower spine (which explained the immeasurable pain). I really loved reading Kris’ life story, she is strong and brilliant for spreading such an important message to check your boobs.
