ALEXANDRA VON KORFF
Alexandra started a blog to deal with the situation, motivate others and raise awareness, as cancer is still a taboo. Negligence does not protect though and she promotes regular self examinations, as breast cancer isn’t exclusively for the generation 60+ and incorrect diagnosis amongst young patients happens still too often. Her newest project is a podcast (2 Frauen, 2 Brüste - 2 women, 2 bosoms), which she runs with her fellow breast friend Paula Ellerbrock, covering several topics around cancer, like finances, chemos and administration. They are aiming to lift the tabu and in abreeze talk about the highs and the lows without trivializing it, as it is a life threatening disease.
