"Having cancer is the easy part; it’s the treatment that’s the bitch."
"That's when he said it could be cancer, but we thought he's wrong, I'm 17, there's no way I can have cancer"
"When cancer comes along and gets in the way, Teenage Cancer Trust works and drives to make sure life is as good as it possibly can be."
"If you’d told me I was going to get cancer, I wouldn’t have believed you. Cancer didn’t happen to people like me."
