Episode #19 – A Laser Focus on Cancer with Leslie Ferris Yerger

YOUR BEST FUTURE PODCAST EPISODE #19 with Leslie Ferris Yerger

Hello and welcome to YOUR BEST FUTURE.

I want to introduce you to today’s special guest Leslie Ferris Yerger

If you only listen to one podcast episode this week, make it this one! And I would sincerely ask you to share this podcast episode with as many people as you can and get my guest’s powerful message out there. And know that by doing this you can help save many people’s heartache, pain, and ultimately, their lives.

You see, it’s not every day that I get to interview a Tedx speaker, first time author of and a women’s advocate with a laser focused mission. Yet that’s exactly what happened when I spoke with Leslie Ferris Yerger.

Leslie was diagnosed with Stage IV breast cancer in November 2017 after an ‘all clear’ mammogram and ultrasound, experiencing first-hand the failings of the current breast cancer screening technologies.

She is now determined to advance the next generation in breast cancer screening so that her story does not become your story or the story of someone you love.

In this episode, you will hear...
✅   More about breast cancer health

✅ What drove Leslie to write her book, Probably Benign.

✅   How Leslie is intent on making an impact in the medical world

✅   How breast screening monitoring differs in different countries

✅   How important the decade of the 40’s is so important for women

✅ About Leslie’s walk on the Santiago de Compostela

✅  How Leslie recognised that she wanted to make a difference

✅   How men must help drive for change for their female loved ones too

✅   How Leslie is making a difference through awareness

✅   Why Leslie advocates talking about the issue and educating others

And much, much more.

Take a listen to help you plan your best future, listen to Leslie’s wisdom, adopt a responsible mindset towards your health, and maybe this episode will help you and others around you.

Many thanks to Leslie Ferris Yerger, TedX Speaker and Author
