Green candidate – Nicki Ward – York South—Weston

In 2010, I was diagnosed with a tumour on my heart.

Months of chemo left me alive, but severely and permanently disabled.

To say I am sympathetic to your cause would be a gross understatement – I’ve lived through the challenges you describe and know the personal hardships that arise from the experience.

My party is unlikely to form a government, but if I am elected as an MP, you can be sure there will be one more voice in parliament to speak on behalf of survivors.

Many thanks for all you do,
