Lifestyle blogs are ten a penny, but well-informed health blogs are hard to find. Siobhán Freeney’s ‘Being Dense’ is an Irish blog aiming to raise awareness around breast density, a condition that increases the risk of developing cancer. On today’s podcast, Freeney talks to Kathy Sheridan about her patient advocacy work, her own experience with breast cancer, and explains why breast density notification must become part of regular breast screening in Ireland. Also on today’s show, Róisín chats to Romana Testasecca of Watermelon Fitness, who is raising much needed funds for ‘Cooking for Freedom’ - a small charity which helps asylum seekers in Direct Provision buy food for themselves. She is holding on online event called ‘Move to Feel Good’ and it’s happening this Bank Holiday Monday.
