Presented by Karen Hobbs


Join Karen for the honest and hilarious story of her cervical cancer extravaganza. In her debut show, she will share with you the gore and glory of getting a nasty surprise at 24, and why laughter is a lifesaver. Through comedy, storytelling and a poem to Svetlana the Tumour, you will spend 50 minutes with someone who has found a light at the end of her vaginal tunnel. Tumour Has It challenges the stigma of having a gynaecological disease, raises awareness, celebrates life and loudly tells cancer that it was barking up the wrong chuff.
