This week we chat with campaigner, broadcast and founder of Girl vs Cancer, Lauren Mahon about her experience of body image and cancer. Lauren’s infectious energy, unapologetic honesty and huge relatability make for a great interview.
We also share our favourite and less favourite things on the subject of body chat this week in our regular Going UP / Going DOWN.
