Story of Survival - Kirsten
Cancer Council Tasmania has produced a series of videos relating the story of a young woman being diagnosed with bowel cancer at the age of 30.
Kirsten, now 31 and in remission, was keen to speak about what it’s like to be a young person on a cancer journey. ‘Kirsten’s Story’ reveals her strong desire to help people understand the support services available to them and to help demystify cancer. The short version of the video can be seen via the link in the yellow box below.
You can also listen to Kirsten speaking about her experience in a radio interview here.View the video here
