Glittering a Turd | Kris Hallenga
I’m Kris with a K. I’m a half German 34 years old living in Cornwall with my cat, Lady Marmalade. For almost a third of my life I have lived with stage 4, secondary, incurable cancer. But I’m here, miraculously, living a life I bloody love.
Shortly after being diagnosed with cancer at 23, Kris started a national charity called CoppaFeel! to educate the world about boobs and life – and raising a massive £2million per year. Today she works part time for CoppaFeel! from her home in Cornwall where she runs a coffee truck business with her twin and breathe in fresh sea air every day.
"This honest and beautiful book is a story of resilience and doing life your way" Fearne Cotton
"Kris's story should make you feel grateful for every second you're alive. It's a testament to her positivity, empathy, bravery and her unfailing sense of humour. She is the most incredible human" Dermot O'Leary
"This doesn’t read like a book about someone living with a terminal disease. Instead, it is a manifesto for how to be alive" Dawn O'Porter
