Cancer survivor hopes to find cure9th July 2012
A woman who survived leukaemia as a child has just completed her PhD from Newcastle University's Northern Institute for Cancer Research.
After a night out with friends Vicky Forster tweeted: "Dear Cancer I beat you aged eight, and today I got my PhD in cancer research. Take that." The tweet has since been retweeted over 4,500 times. She said: "I'd been out celebrating my PhD when I sent the tweet, and when I woke up I couldn't believe it was viral. I've been overwhelmed by the response. I was a bit tipsy when I sent it in the early hours and when I woke up it was trending."
