Kat should have been preparing to graduate from university and looking forward to the next chapter of her life, but cancer had other plans. After more than a year of misdiagnoses, she was given a terminal diagnosis.

Cancer pushed everyone away. Her boyfriend and two best friends abandoned her and her mental health suffered massively.

“My life changed completely with the diagnosis. All I wanted was to feel normal and I felt completely alone. But then I met my CLIC Sargent Social Worker, Charlotte. She is amazing and has made the world of difference. I love her for all she’s done. I know I have a terminal diagnosis, but Charlotte has given me life.”

Kat was told she had terminal cancer after more than a year of being misdiagnosed. In the year that followed, she began to feel completely isolated after her partner left her and she lost her two best friends. That’s when CLIC Sargent stepped in and helped her to regain her confidence.
