Rachael Blands chart-topping podcast about living with cancer has been named Best New Radio Show, one month after her death.
You, Me and The Big C took one of the top prizes at Thursday nights Audio, Radio and Industry Awards (ARIAs), where plans were announced continue the next phase in Rachaels honour.
Mum-of-one Rachael died at the age of 40 on 5 September, almost two years after being diagnosed with breast cancer.
Her husband Steve accepted the award with a speech about Rachaels brilliant life.
This award would mean the world to her, he said. But more than that, shed be filled with utter pride by the impact You, Me and The Big C has had on others.
Thats exactly what she wanted to achieve.
Jonathan Wall, Controller of BBC Radio 5 Live, called her time on the show the most important broadcasting I have ever heard about living with cancer.
The show was originally presented as a trio with Rachaels friends Lauren Mahon and Deborah James, who are both being treated, or have been treated, for cancer.
They echoed Walls determination to keep the conversation going and take the podcast back to the studio later this year, as Rachael wanted.
The podcast will continue to face head-on, the impossibly difficult conversations around cancer with honesty and humour.
Deborah said: Myself and Lauren are looking forward to getting back in the studio soon and continuing what we started.
I know Rach is smiling down upon us with pride and will be right with us as we take the podcast into its next phase.
This win at the ARIAs follows You, Me and The Big C being named best podcast the Northern Blog Awards at the end of September.
Rachael, who left behind three-year-old son Freddie, was diagnosed with primary triple-negative breast cancer on 22 November 2016, which had spread to four lymph nodes under her right arm.
Sadly, in October 2017, a scan discovered that the cancer had spread to the opposite lymph nodes, and in April this year, Rachael learned that her cancer was incurable.
By September, she had shared with fans that she had just days to live.
