Lorraine's Helen Addis thanks Dr Hilary's breast exam demonstration for leading to her cancer diagnosis
Lorraine producer Helen Addis was diagnosed with breast cancer just a few months ago. She praises Dr Hilary for his on-screen breast exam demonstrations which taught her how to check her own boobs and subsequently led to a breast cancer diagnosis.
Since Helen's diagnosis, she's started a blog - The Titty Gritty - where she documents her own journey through treatment and raises awareness of symptoms of breast cancer and the importance of regular checks. In the two months she's been blogging, she's already been contacted by numerous women who have discovered symptoms of their own and some have even got a breast cancer diagnosis since they started reading her blogs.
