Description

I first came across the author Kris because of the organisation I worked for was offering some start up support in the early days of her charity Coppafeel! When I heard youngsters on a bus chatting about what they had learned about breast cancer in school that day, I silently thanked Kris and CoppaFeel for finally putting cancer awareness on the national curriculum so that all young people would have the chance to be educated about how to advocate for their health. Publication dates are subject to change (although this is an extremely uncommon occurrence overall). 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 have been impacted by the theme of this podcast there are support resources available including Tommy’s - https://www.

Please rate and review the podcast where you choose to listen as it helps others discover the conversations Kris is having. In the very same setting where I and my friend work, another colleague has a daughter who was told by a MALE GP that her bleeding between periods was likely due to rough sex with her boyfriend! From founding a charity to visiting Downing Street, campaigning at festivals to appearing on TV, and being present at the birth of her nephew; in the face of all the possible prognoses, Kris is surviving, thriving, and resolutely living.Little did Kris know it was cancer that would lead her to a life she had never considered: a happy one.

In this episode Gareth opens up to Kris about the importance of community, trusting yourself, his struggles with mental health and how looking back became the key to unlocking his future. When a huge turd of an obstacle (in this case cancer) is thrown in your way how do you deal with it?But in my community (myositis), it seems like being a woman, and being a woman of colour, already makes you start with a disadvantage. She’s been living with terminal cancer for 14 years now and has officially mastered how to glitter a turd. com/howtoglitteraturd and head to Patreon to find out who you can become part of the Turd Glitterati https://www.
