Deborah James: ‘Rachael Bland leaves a wonderful legacy’

Deborah James has paid tribute to BBC Radio 5 Live presenter Rachael Bland, who has died at the age of 40.

Rachael wrote about her treatment for cancer on her award winning blog, before creating the podcast 'You, Me and the Big C', an honest and frank look at what it's like living with cancer.

She presented it with Lauren Mahon and Deborah James, her friends who are also living with cancer.

Deborah told 5 Live’s Tony Livesey that Rachael “leaves a wonderful legacy” and says we need to “celebrate her life and continue the work she started”.
