Podcast: Sonia - On 20 years of change in breast cancer

In this episode, Laura talks to Sonia, member of the board of trustees at Breast Cancer Now. Sonia speaks about her diagnosis of breast cancer and how it affected her personally and professionally.

"It's not something to be ashamed of. Anybody can get breast cancer, even men. And it's no respect of age or colour or your sexuality."


She tells Laura about how she believed black women don't get breast cancer, back when she was diagnosed in 2004, and how she works to improve diversity and awareness. Sonia also champions the importance of early detection of breast cancer and describes the promising research into the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in breast screening.
