Denbighshire medical student gains thousands of followers after sharing her cancer journey on TikTok

A medical student from Denbighshire has been documenting her life with cancer on the social media platform TikTok.

Eleri Reece-Jones is 21 and was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma last month.

She decided to share the news on TikTok because she couldn't think of the best way to tell her friends.

Just a few weeks after she posted her first video, Eleri's gained more than 30,000 followers - she says the response she's had online has shown her 'how much people care.'

Eleri is due to start chemotherapy on 18 February. She took to her online community to discuss the best options for her hair - and decided to cut it short and donate it to the Little Princess Trust, a charity that provides free wigs to children and young people with cancer.

Although her diagnosis with Stage 4 cancer was a shock, Eleri says her decision to stay positive is keeping her going.
