Steph Hayter: Video Diary
Here we meet nineteen year old Steph Hayter, who was recently diagnosed with Leukemia. After a successful first year at University and an exciting and care free summer holiday, Steph began to experience a series of hip pains, leading to a series of tests and biopsies, and eventually her diagnosis of cancer. Steph explains how the initial shock was worsened by the prospect of losing her freedom, after looking forward to returning to Uni for her second year, surrounded by friends. After being in hospital for two weeks, Steph is allowed out for two nights and the first stop is the seaside, where the sunny weather and light breeze comes as a welcome break from the confines of hospital.
