Kerry's time to be heard, living with advanced ovarian cancer

[music] 

[00:00:05] Kerry: In the whole process of cancer and ovarian cancer, I think being listened to and understood by everybody is a really important thing. I think mentally, that really does help as well because a lot of friends and family don't know how to talk about it and don't know how to tackle it and their way of dealing with it is to say, "Oh, you're looking well." "Everything's okay?" "Great," and moving on. A bit like when you see people and you go, "Hi, how are you?" And they go, "Fine." and you go, "Yes, I'm fine too." When probably you're not fine, but you just say you're fine. I think having time and having the moment to be able to talk to people, honestly I think is important.
