Many people say their clinical nurse specialist has helped them much more in dealing with menopausal symptoms than their doctors ever did. Sadly, many more say they were pushed back when they went and asked for help. 

Andrea Ward is a team leader for the breast care nurse team at York and Scarborough NHS Trust. She works in a combined role as a Macmillan Breast Care Clinical Nurse Specialist and a Nurse Practitioner and on the episode today she is helping us understand what we can expect from our specialist nurses at what point in our treatment. 

It is crucial that we know who to ask for help! 

About Dani:

The Menopause and Cancer Podcast is hosted by Dani Binnington, menopause guide, patients advocate for people in menopause after a cancer diagnosis, and founder of the online platform Healthy Whole Me. 

There is lots of information out there about the menopause but hardly any if you have had a cancer diagnosis as well. Many people say to me they have no idea what their options are, who to ask for help, and that they feel really isolated in their experiences. 

I started this podcast because there was nothing out there when I was thrown into surgical menopause at the age of 39, which followed on from my cancer diagnosis aged 33.

Through the episodes, I want to create more awareness, share information from our fabulous guest experts, doctors and other specialists in the cancer and menopause field. 

And of course, I will share stories from the people in our community.

So that together we can work towards a better menopause experience. For all of us.

More educated, better informed and less alone.
