The cancer survivor who inspired us during her battle

•I’m humbled to still be alive in 2019. There was a stage where it looked very bleak for me but I was able to have lifesaving surgery in March and I remember the sheer gratitude as I walked into the operating theatre then waking up in intensive care realising that I was going to get another shot at life.

•I’m inspired by regular people facing extraordinary circumstances with grace and dignity.

•I would love to see more coffee chains addressing the plastic straw issue and creating single-use coffee cups that can be recycled.
