Shownotes

In this week’s episode of The Menopause and Cancer podcast, Dani Binnington is joined by Dawn Totty. Dawn shares her personal experience of having to stop HRT because of her endometrial cancer diagnosis, and the unexpected life transformations that take place with a cancer diagnosis. Dawn speaks about her quest to find out her own risks vs. benefits of going back on HRT after her particular cancer diagnosis.

Dawn’s story is a testament to the power of self-advocacy as a patient and the incredible advantage that has for us.

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.
