New cancer awareness campaign launched for schools

A woman who is living with cancer has launched a campaign for children to be taught about the disease in school.

Kris Hallenga, who's 28, has been speaking to pupils at three secondary schools in Winchester today. She was only 23 years old when she developed breast cancer, and by the time it was diagnosed it had spread. Kris wants lessons about cancer to be introduced to the national curriculum.

The campaign launched today is called Rethink Cancer.
