The Shrewsbury Biscuit Podcast: How Do We Talk About Cancer? With Mary Perry

How do we talk about cancer? Do you, or have you struggled to have conversations with friends or family about their cancer? Is there a way we can approach the subject without being too intrusive?

Well, today on the Biscuit Alex and verity are joined by Mary Perry, a survivor of breast cancer who is here to talk to us about her journey in a really relaxed, casual way. This episode felt so natural, that the guys forgot that they were recording a podcast!

Talking to Mary and Verity, Alex discovers the do’s and don’ts of talking to someone about their cancer and in all reality, the general consensus (in this room) was that we should just…talk about it. Verity says ‘Ok, there’s an elephant in the room, let’s talk about it.’

After facing cancer in her own journey, Mary turned her focus to helping charities that matter when it comes to cancer treatment. We are of course talking about Lingen Davies. Mary organised a ‘Tractor Run’ in Shropshire last year that went on to raise over £5,500!

In this episode you will find out what has driven Mary, verity and actually a lot of cancer survivors to go out and give something back after treatment. Plus you will find out what a tractor run is!

I cannot express how great this podcast is! This is by far the most natural interview (if you can call it one) that we have done for a very long time. So come, take a listen and I hope you enjoy the show, Mary is fantastic! – AL
