Conversations about cancer: How to talk about the Big C, featuring Coleen Nolan, Michelle Heaton and Azmina Rose
Talking about cancer is still a big fat taboo, despite most of us having been affected by it in some way.

Here, Coleen Nolan discusses how she has dealt with multiple diagnoses in her family and Michelle Heaton explains how talking about her preventative double mastectomy helped her to process that choice.
