Alex Edghill, Clinical Nurse Manager and Specialist Breast Care Nurse at Spire Hartswood Hospital and Lauren Dixon, One of Spire Hartswood’s Youngest Breast Cancer Patients

Tonight on Bodytalk, to mark October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Jules Bottazzi chatted to Alex Edghill, who is Clinical Nurse Manager and specialist breast care nurse at Spire Hartswood Hospital. Alex talked about the extraordinary care she and the team give to patients, from diagnosis to mastectomy to chemo to aftercare.

Jules was also joined by Lauren Dixon, one of Spire Hartswood’s youngest breast cancer patients, who was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer at just 25 years old. Lauren talked movingly about how she battled the disease, motivated by her two young children, and how Alex became almost a guardian angel to her.
