A woman from Carlisle has used her experiences of breast cancer to write a play.
Carol Donockley, from Stanix, lost her best friend Lynda Taylor to the disease when she was just 51.
The one-woman monologue features a woman's thoughts as she battles the illness.
Everyone involved in the production of the play has either had or knows someone who has had breast cancer.
Money raised from the play will go towards the "Look Good, Feel Better" support group at Cumberland Infirmary, Age UK Carlisle and Eden Valley Hospice's cancer support group for both men and women.
