  Living with Breast Cancer Friday 26 September 2003  
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK and affects 41,000 women each year.

To mark the start of Breast Cancer Awareness Month we take a look at living with a diagnosis of breast cancer.
Cancer specialist Professor Ian Fentiman and writers Katie Pearson and Patricia Daunt who were diagnosed with breast cancer in their thirties and sixties respectively join Martha to talk about living with the disease.
