Kris: Dying To Live

One young woman's tireless campaign to fight the disease that is killing her.

Kris Hallenga was 23 when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Eight months earlier she had visited her GP, but the tumour was missed; she was surely too young for cancer? By the time she was correctly diagnosed, it had spread to her spine and was terminal.

But instead of despairing, Kris decided that live was worth living if she could make a difference for other women. This documentary follows the indomitable Kris, now 27 as she balances tireless campaigning with radio therapy.
