A much-loved and highly respected BBC journalist, Victoria Derbyshire has spent 20 years finding the human story behind the headlines. In 2015, she herself was in the news, after receiving a devastating breast cancer diagnosis. With honesty and openness, she decided to live out her treatment and recovery in the spotlight in a series of video diaries that aimed to demystify the illness.The diaries have so far amassed 17 million views.
Victoria’s story is an affecting and at times heart-breaking one but it is so often laugh-out-loud too. Moving, wonderfully heart-warming and ultimately uplifting, this is a powerful account of a brave struggle told with honesty, courage and emotion that gives strength to anyone touched by cancer.
Join Victoria for an evening of conversation, questions, answers and above all, openness.
