Interview for Bournemouth University student

9th November 2013

Today did an interveiw with a lovely student from Bournemouth University about Male Breast Cancer. Sally Fish and her cameraman Ed recorded a question and answer interview to help Sally with her media studies. Sally is also keen to raise awareness about Male breast cancer that I am also trying too as well , hence I didn’t hesitate to offer my services to sally when asked. Hopefully it all goes well and that seeing my scar was not too shocking for her. Wishing sally all the best with her work on this course , and it was a pleasure to meet you both.
