Having returned home for Christmas from time out travelling in Europe, what should have been a routine trip to the doctor left 31 year old Ursula with a diagnosis of Stage 1A ovarian cancer. Only 36% of all UK women diagnosed with ovarian cancer will still be alive 5 years later. Determined not to sink into self-pity Ursula decided that she would continue her travels and walk between her home in Machnlleth and hospital appointments in Bristol and any follow up treatment. This decision led her to plan to walk Wales publicising the need for early detection for the disease which kills far too many patients due to ignorance of symptoms. 'One Woman Walks Wales' is a story of determination, tears and laughter, joy and pain, and a fascinating insight into not just one woman during a testing time, but a country, its landscape and its people.
