Breast Cancer Awareness Special - Driven Female Entrepreneur Podcast

Breast Cancer Awareness Special

Listen to the Episode


Today we have a very special episode of the Driven Female Entrepreneur Podcast for Breast Cancer Awareness month.


As this is such an important topic as 1 in 7 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer, so this week I invited four guests to join me: 


Sapna Pieroux who was diagnosed BC in August and is currently recovering from surgery.


Judit Csapo who was diagnosed five years ago and has recently pivoted her business and retrained to support more women through their cancer and health journey.


Catherine Schopfer an online cancer coach who has been supporting women with their lifestyle and purpose for the decade following her own cancer journey, and 


Dr. Cecilia Serban a medical doctor who worked with terminal cancer patients and who now focuses on helping women optimise their health and lifestyle. 


We’ll talk about how each of them has experienced the condition in a unique but equally significant way, as well as how they’re each managing it. They will discuss their varied perspectives as patients, survivors, professionals and most of all, as women.


Don’t miss this empowering episode as these four courageous ladies will inspire and motivate you to enjoy greater health, wellbeing and happiness as they show you that this needn’t be a journey of illness, but one of empowerment!



It's time to communicate openly about breast cancer and to stop stigmatising the disease. -Sapna Pieroux Click To Tweet





You will learn so much in this value-packed breast cancer awareness special:


Sapna Pieroux


  • Why publicly sharing her experience was so important for her 


  • Why and how she told her two boys about her diagnosis


  • Why her doctor called breast cancer an Affluent Disease.


  • What guidance, based on her experiences, would she provide others.



Judit Csapo


  • How she managed the roller coaster of emotions in her cancer journey.


  • Why she refers to her experience with cancer as a health journey


  • How her experience had lead her to pivot her business to coach and support other women navigating their own health journeys following a cancer diagnosis.



When going through this health journey, it is important to create a supportive social circle and a non-toxic environment. -Judit Csapo Click To Tweet



Catherine Schopfer


  • Why she calls cancer her friend.


  • What women can do to lower their risk of developing breast cancer.


  • The significant trends she has identified during her ten years of helping other breast cancer survivors that she believes women should be aware of right away.



Dr. Cecilia Serban


  • Her experience supporting breast cancer patients and their families


  • What each physician wants their cancer patients to be aware of.


  • The one questions every woman should ask their doctor after learning they have cancer, but few do.


  • What can women do to assist their own medical care.



When you are happy, when you are yourself, you feel this energy and the cells feel the same way. This is a means of self-defence or prevention. -Catherine Schopfer Click To Tweet



You’ll also hear all four women discussing:


  • Why they firmly believe that you don’t have to stand alone in your journey.


  • Exactly what to do (and not do) to support a friend with breast cancer.


  • How to manage your business around your cancer treatments.

Everybody should know that they are not powerless, that they can take action to address the situation. -Dr. Cecilia Serban Click To Tweet
