About this deal

I’ve followed the work of Kris Hallenga since I was first diagnosed with cancer and became aware of enthusiastic students bouncing around in giant boob costumes.

Releasing her first EP in 2012 followed by her debut album in 2015 it seemed Rae Morris had the world at her feet and her dream career firmly underway. I’ve received a Pride of Britain Award, A Cosmopolitan magazine Campaigner of the year award, shortlisted for Third Sectors most admired charity CEO, and have been awarded an honorary doctorate in Public Administration from Nottingham Trent University. If you were sitting in a room chatting to Kris I cannot imagine the conversation to be any more intimate and engaging than the writing in this book.multiple brain lesions - 57 in total throughout the year, treated with targeted gamma knife radiotherapy (I was completely asymptomatic). You would think this book would be a real downer, a real tear-jerker, and yes it will make you cry in parts, but overall it’s really positive. I would recommend this book to everyone young and old to tell them that life is short that they have seize the day and to always check your boobs. This book time hops to give you an insight into the life growing up, the life before diagnosis and the life during the diagnosis.

If you're not familiar with Kris then it may surprise you to know that eleven years after a terminal breast cancer diagnosis at the age of 23 she has written the most positive, inspiring and life affirming book. If people take away one message from this book , it should be this, above all else, don't ever take no for an answer, particularly from a doctor. In this episode, Laura opens up to Kris about the highs and lows she experienced while living out her ‘blue crush dream’, including a fierce battle with bulimia that consumed her at the height of her years in competitive sport.oh, and to remind you to check your boobs, and trust your instinct when it comes to your own body and wellness. When I first started reading this I almost felt a little arrogant, saying to myself “Of course that’s breast cancer! In this episode of the podcast Kris has Rae reflect on what truly made her happy, how knowing that the day would come softened its blow slightly, and the joys of motherhood but the difficulty in juggling the personal and professional life.
