    43:17
    Send your thoughts, feelings, opinions and suggestions to 0892096423!Erica Tierney was one of the first guests I had on in the early days of this podcast. Life was getting back to normal for her after having a baby and being treated for breast cancer all at the same time, but she was determined to make a change for women like her whose maternity leave was taken up by cancer treatment. The political will was there, and it felt like change was coming, but two years later nothing has changed. This week, I spoke to Erica again. She is back in the world of cancer, having been diagnosed with breast cancer again, and more determined than ever to improve things for other women.
