Sonya has created a platform – Stellar Women by Sonya, where she provides advice and resources around perimenopause and menopause, and through her ewonderful podcast Dear Menopause, she speaks with other women and specialists about the menopause journey. She is passionate about helping to normalise the conversation around menopause and providing support thorugh advocacy!

Sandy and Sonya chat about her journey through surviving cancer, and how the power of telling her story has helped so many other women to feel less alone.
