Steve Bland announced as speaker for Being Well Festival

Steve Bland, ex-radio producer and husband of You, Me and the Big C’s Rachael Bland, has been announced as a speaker at Being Well Festival.

Steve Bland was a producer on BBC Radio 5 Live and in September 2013 married Welsh journalist and presenter, Rachael Bland (nee Hodges). Unfortunately, Rachel was diagnosed with breast cancer in November 2016 and died just two years later, in September 2018. Steve continues to strengthen Rachael’s legacy; looking after their beautiful son, Freddie, and appearing on TV and radio to talk about cancer, its emotional heartbreak, and the impact his wife had during her time.

Whilst alive, Rachael started the BBC podcast ‘You, Me and the Big C’ to raise awareness of cancer; discussing the disease with celebrities and providing advice of how to manage it. The podcast featured fellow cancer patients Deborah James and Lauren Mahon and became popular for its discussion of cancer, with medical experts regularly appearing on the programme.

The Being Well Festival, which takes place at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, on 24 October 2019 is a brand new wellness event promoting happier, healthier lives.
