Breast cancer and health advocacy (with Rachelle Panitz from So Brave)
Have you ever been dismissed by a healthcare professional when raising something of concern? Are you guilty of putting off health checks because you can’t be bothered to book an appointment? How do you actually advocate for yourself in a healthcare setting when you notice something that isn’t quite right? Today I am joined by Rachelle Panitz, founder of Australia's first breast cancer charity for young women, So Brave. Rachelle was diagnosed with breast cancer at 32 years old and kindly shares her story with us, as well as some great advice on how we can be #breastaware and better advocate for ourselves in health care settings.
