Jillian Fullarton: Breast Cancer & Medically Induced Menopause

 

Watch the podcast, above, or listen below.

Jillian joins me to share her story of breast cancer and the medically induced menopause that resulted from her treatment. She highlights the most difficult parts of her diagnosis and treatment, and shares what she’s learned during the past year in the hope that it will help other women undergoing breast cancer treatment or supporting someone who is.

Jill and I discuss the many different types of breast cancer and the treatments, including hormone blockers, and drugs for the side effects.

This is an informative and hopeful conversation about a very important topic that you won’t want to miss.

Sarah and I discuss the key things women need to know to advocate effectively for themselves and navigate our complex health care system in midlife, particularly with respect to their perimenopause and menopausal symptoms.
