When Jo Woolnough asked her oncologist to discuss the use of HRT after her breast cancer diagnosis her oncologist said “No, she can’t have that conversation.” 

In this episode, I want to find out what Jo’s thought processes were in exploring HRT after her oestrogen driven breast cancer and I am curious to hear if Jo got her “Funny back”.

The use of HRT after a cancer diagnosis is a topic that brings with it many conflicting information and opinions. It is my aim to have a non-judgemental conversation that explores one person’s thoughts and decisions, today this is Jo’s story.

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.
