Elise Stapleton was left stunned when doctors told her she had Hodgkin lymphoma in September last year.

The diagnosis meant the 24-year-old needed to undergo intensive chemotherapy which caused her to lose her hair, Mirror reported.

But rather than shying away from the ordeal, she decided to write a blog in the hope of inspiring others.

Elise poked fun at Trump after naming her tumour after him.

"I decided to name it 'Donald' as in Donald Trump – one big, ugly, useless mass that is good at one thing: hurting people."

Elise, an admin assistant, spoke to WalesOnline about her battle to mark World Cancer Day.

"I set up the blog because I just wanted to address the elephant in the room. It was really important to me because it felt empowering and it gave me a voice. People were shocked when they read about it all. They couldn’t believe that in the blog I was laughing and joking about it but I just said if you don't laugh you cry," she said.

Elise said her first treatment was rough, leaving her with side effects including nausea, diarrhoea and fatigue.
