Mihaela, a rocker and keen cyclist who runs her own dog sitting business, said:
“The more we talk about mammograms both in the lesbian community and the Romanian community and in general the better.
“I was very pleased to get my mammogram invitation. I didn’t hesitate to go along at all. I know from growing up in Bucharest, we are lucky to benefit from this screening service in the UK, but not many women I know seem to talk about it much. So wanted to put that right! It’s a free service that’s provided by the NHS, we should go and not waste it! You don’t often see pictures of women like me in information leaflets, but mammograms are important for all women!”
