A routine trip to the doctor left seasoned traveller Ursula with a diagnosis of Stage 1A Ovarian Cancer. Determined not to sink into self-pity, she continued her travels by walking between her Welsh home and hospital appointments in Bristol, leading to her decision to walk across Wales to publicise the need for early detection of the disease, which kills many patients due to ignorance of symptoms. Taking 17 months Ursula's story is one of determination, tears and laughter, joy and pain; a fascinating insight into one woman's journey and also a country, its landscape and its people.
