Featured Speaker – Bridgid Nzekwu | World Cancer Day Speakers

After battling cancer twice, reporter Bridgid Nzekwu is an advocate for physical and mental health and wellbeing. Shortly after leaving school, she was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma and went through gruelling radiotherapy before being given a clean bill of health. Then in 2012 she was told that a benign lump in her left breast had developed into a malignant tumour. Poignantly, it seems the cause of the cancer was the high dose of radiation she had when she was younger, and because of his high does, it meant she was unable to have anymore and so opted to have her breast removed. But once the doctors told her she had a 25% chance of the cancer returning in the other breast, she opted for a double mastectomy. Through her own experience, Bridgit is a speaker who can impart wisdom and truly sympathise with any audience.
