Jules Peters: My Cancer Journey

Documentary following Jules Peters, wife of Alarm frontman Mike Peters, 15 months after her diagnosis of breast cancer and her subsequent successful treatment.

In July 2016 Jules Peters was diagnosed with breast cancer.

Now, 15 months after successful treatment, the programme follows the mother-of-two and wife of Alarm frontman Mike Peters as she undergoes reconstructive surgery, meets other women at different stages in their own journey through the disease and explores how such a devastating diagnosis affects women's ideas of body image, femininity and sexuality - and how she now sees her experience of cancer as an 'unlikely blessing'.

The film includes the three remarkable women who run the You Me and the Big C podcast. Sadly the BBC broadcaster Rachael Bland, who features in the programme, died on 5 September 2018.
