Laura Brennan: This is Me

We follow the final chapters in the life of Laura Brennan who was living her life to the full with end stage cervical cancer, which was caused by HPV. Laura was determined that every parent in Ireland who was about to make the decision whether their daughter was to be vaccinated, would hear her story first and worked tirelessly as an advocate for the HPV vaccine. The vaccination rate in Ireland had fallen to 51%. After a heroic battle Laura died on March 20th 2019. The most recent figures reveal that the uptake of the vaccine has risen to 70%.
