HIV/AIDS: listen to Adrienne Seed with Stephen Lowe on BBC Radio


Adrienne was on the panel (above) with Stephen who was standing in for Sally Naden. It was a great show and Stephen makes everyone feel so relaxed. Just a pity it wasn’t on TV as Adrienne’s fellow panellists were lovely too. Nic (who is looking for women of all ages & sizes to dance naked in her production at Lancaster University) was, like Adrienne, very animated. Such a pity you weren’t able to see then – all with blue eyes, including Stephen! You can listen to the programme for the next seven days at:   http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/p005cwwf/Sally_Naden_07_12_2009/

Also on the show was Ruth Schofield who has a shop in Clitheroe named Precious Little Treasures.

Born in Liverpool at the end of WW2, but raised in Skelmersdale. I first studied art in Southport from 1960-63 and worked in graphic design till I married. In December 1969 I moved to Zambia with my husband and two young children. There I taught art in the local girls school, illustrated for the National Correspondence College and did all sorts of other artwork, paid and unpaid. In 1978 I divorced and remarried in the summer of 1980. In 1985 I became ill and the following year cancer was diagnosed. There was no treatment available in Zambia and so I had to go to the UK. After recovering from a radium needle implant I went back to Zambia, but 18 months later the cancer recurred and it was off to the UK again for radical surgery. This time I realised I must stay in the UK where treatment was available, so I never returned to Zambia nor my husband. A few months later I applied for a degree course, but two years later the disease metastasised and I spent most of my final year in and out of hospital. It’s been a long hard road, but I’m still plodding on and it is now 24 years since my last cancer treatment. Because of my experience of cancer and surviving against the odds, I try and help others cope with their devastating diagnosis and prognosis.
