Women Together – Season 2 - Episode 12
Women Together – Episode 12 – Breast Cancer UK For their Live show on Thursday, July 1st, the presenters talk about breast cancer and discussions that can be discussed amongst prayer groups about awareness on reducing everyone’s risk.  Genevieve interviews Thalie Martini, CEO of Breast Cancer UK. Thalie has over 18 years’ experience working in senior roles in the public and third sectors in the UK and Australia. Before joining Breast Cancer UK, Thalie was CEO of Magpie Dance, the UK’s leading dance charity for people with learning disabilities.  Thalie has run a number of high profile programmes including a national programme to transform care practice in schools for children with medical conditions at Diabetes UK; a major transformation project at the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences in Sydney; numerous statewide public health prevention programmes for New South Wales State government including a ground-breaking magistrates drug diversion initiative.  Thalie is passionate about prevention and social empowerment. Having lost her mother to Breast Cancer in 2007, Thalie is committed to making breast cancer prevention a policy and public health priority. Breast Cancer UK’s mission is to prevent breast cancer through education, scientific research, collaboration and policy change.   Their website, www.breastcanceruk.org.uk, says that over 54,000 women and 390 men a year in the UK are diagnosed with breast cancer. Yet a quarter of these cases are preventable through lifestyle changes. That means over 13,000 cases of breast cancer could be prevented, saving millions of lives, avoiding unnecessary suffering and reducing the cost to the NHS by over £1.5 billion a year. It is raising awareness of these preventable factors which drives Breast Cancer UK. They believe their work can have significant impact in helping women reduce their risk of developing breast cancer. Breast Cancer UK has now launched our Breast Cancer UK Prevention Hub which is full of tips and advice on action they can take to reduce their risk of developing breast cancer. It is free, accessible and personalised and will give people the opportunity to develop their own personal prevention plan.  To access this new service, click this link:  Breast Cancer UK | Prevention Hub (breastcancerprevention.org.uk)

Women Together - Season 2, Episode 5
Women Together - Season 2, Episode 5 Developing spiritual health.  The lockdown may have revealed our spiritual poverty for many of us, as we struggled to come to terms with the isolation and uncertainty of our new lives.  Certainly, to weather the storms of life, we need a robust spirituality.  But how do we develop this?  Margaret Mary McFadyen, well-known to Radio Maria England for her guided meditations, discusses what developing a deeper relationship with God, which guides and sustains us, is – and isn’t!  She also offers workable ways to connect with the divine in every-day life!  Listen on! Do you feel that that you’d like to develop your spirituality, but you don’t know how?  Or, have you found something in particular really useful as a means of encountering God?  Or, do you think introspection is navel-gazing?!  Whatever your views, Women Together would love to hear from you.

Have you ever had to watch someone you love go on a mission to self-destruct? How can we support those who need our faith, love and patience during these difficult seasons?

And was it worth it?  Do we need more courage to live out Jesus’ calling for us to have an abundant life?  What do you think?  Is it ok to go against the grain sometimes?  How do we know what’s reckless…. And what might just be an opportunity to step out and experience God in new ways? Join us Thursday, 22nd of April, LIVE, from 11am – 12pm, in which the ladies share an interview with Sarah.
