The Guardian wrote a powerful piece about feminist campaigner Denise Marshall's recent cancer diagnosis. She is the CEO of the feminist charity Eaves and said that she isn't going to let the inoperable cancer keep her from doing all of the work she has left to do. In her career, Marshall has founded projects to prevent sexual violence and support its victims. She is passionate and dedicated to her work, and when she received her diagnosis inoperable cancer of the stomach and small intestine her focus turned to getting well enough to keep working.
The article discusses Marshall's approach to her diagnosis: "Marshall dislikes the 'battle with cancer' narrative, and is loathe to describe her relationship with it as such. 'I know it’s a 'cliche, but I would rather die standing than live on my knees,' she says. ;I know I have made a difference, but I need to live to do more.'"
