Angelina Jolie has written an article in the New York Times about facing breast cancer & the decision to have a double mastectomy because she carries the Brca 1 gene. In studio with Miriam, is author Emma Hannigan who also carries that same gene.
Miriam's next guest was diagnosed with a rare form of bone marrow cancer & while she is currently receiving treatment, the odds of her surviving this are sadly very slim. Joining Miriam is Bridget Megarry.
Also in studio this morning are three Galway-based singers & musicians who have formed a new group together called The Whileaways. Noelie McDonnell, Noriana Kennedy & Nicola Joyce perform for us this morning.
