  Becky Measures 3 July 2004  
How a family history of breast cancer affected her life

Eleven years ago, Wendy Watson decided to have a double mastectomy because of a family history of breast cancer.
This week her daughter Becky Measures made public her decision to have the same operation. She's just twenty two, a presenter on Peak FM radio in Chesterfield and is perfectly healthy. 

Martha asks Becky how difficult it was growing up with breast cancer so prevalent in the family?
