METUPUK member Kit D was featured on Breast Cancer Now, as a patient story, living at a young age with ‘de novo’ metastatic cancer, including this section:
In reality, I am…
A feminist (a fairly radical feminist as it happens – and proud of it).
A football fan. I love AFC Rushden and Diamonds.
An animal lover. Very few things make me happier than visiting animal sanctuaries.
Obsessed with politics. I studied International Relations at Aberystwyth University and loved it. I care about what is happening in the world and want the world to be a better place.
A wife. I love my husband more than anything in this world. We met when I was 18. Married when I was 22.
So yes, cancer is a big thing about me. But it isn’t the only thing about me as I realised after that discussion – probably for the first time since my diagnosis. I am me. I’m cool with that.
