Sometimes in life, things happen which stop you in your tracks. It changes your perception of the world and everything in it.

Only a month ago Tom Hunt was a typical 18-year-old. He had just finished his A-Levels and had gone travelling around Europe with friends. He was enjoying some freedom ahead of starting university, where he had a place to study medicine. Then, life threw him a curveball – he was diagnosed with leukaemia.

Determined not to be defined by cancer, Tom started documenting his journey on social media and, together with his brother, is raising money for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

As Tom begins the toughest challenge he’s faced in his life so far he talks with me about how cancer has changed his outlook on life, why it’s made him even more determined to become a doctor and how sometimes the most difficult times in life may in fact prove to be some of the best.
