“Rotten Melons: When your boobs do you wrong.”

That’s the name of a new podcast started by two Vancouver nurses and breast cancer survivors. The podcast is aimed at helping women as they go through breast cancer diagnosis, treatment and survivorship.

Longtime friends Deanna Berger and Meredith Pena, both labor and delivery nurses, decided to start the podcast after they noticed that most of the information available online about receiving a diagnosis focused on data and hard facts.
