A heads up, either a trigger warning, or a you might be interested. If you have Stan, Series 1 Episode 6 of 'The Bold Type' has a breast cancer storyline. I found it quite well done. A BRCA gene, young women's risk, the difficulties some have with the 'marketing' of BC, the emotional distress around testing.. I've not seen it done in a fictional setting this well before. The show's not great, but I thought this episode handed the topic well.

    What is 'Stan', @kmakm ?  Is it a pay tv?   Sounds interesting!

    @arpie It's a streaming service like Netflix. Australian based.

    It won't @arpie, it's a Stan exclusive.
