Breast Cancer: To work, or not to work? 16 Oct 2007
The pros and cons of working through treatment

Treatment for breast cancer – mastectomy, chemotherapy and radiotherapy – can be long, painful and exhausting. Some women decide to work throughout treatment, others find that option impossible.

Jenni talks to Lindsay Nicholson, Editorial Director of the National Magazine Company who didn’t work during her treatment, and to boutique owner, Irene Willis, who did. They share their motivations and experiences.
