Over the past few years, I have worked with countless women who are also navigating menopause as a result of their cancer treatment or who have fewer treatment options for their menopausal symptoms because of the type of cancer they have had.

And I’ve seen hundreds make the same mistakes over and over again. So I want to share them with you right at the start of 2024 so you don’t have to waste your precious energy!

Let this episode be thought-provoking and explore what resonates for you.

The top 5 mistakes people make are:

  • Too much information
  • Failure to Communicate Clearly
  • Neglecting Mental Health Concerns
  • Reluctance to Seek Second Opinions
  • Non-Adherence to Treatment Plans

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.
