Meet the crazy sexy cancer survivor

(DAILY MAIL)   Kris Carr is impressively frank about her former life, which she calls BC: Before Cancer. As an ambitious young actress living out a long-held dream – with the lead in an Arthur Miller play on Broadway directed by the playwright himself, and a role in a touring production of Chicago – she paid little attention to her health. ‘I was caught up in a crowd that was partying,’ she admits. ‘Everything I ate was processed and microwaved, and at the end of each day, I would grab a bottle of wine, a packet of cigarettes and a takeaway.’ Her primary concern, she quips, was ‘not having back fat in a leotard’.

However, her work-hard, play-harder lifestyle in New York was steadily taking its toll. ‘I was definitely burning myself out,’ she nods. ‘By my mid-20s, I’d started having a lot of problems with my digestion, with eczema and allergies, and with fatigue and depression.’ The latter she self-medicated, with ‘pills and booze and stupid men’.

Even so, when agonizing abdominal pains finally sent her to see a doctor, Kris was in no way prepared for the damning diagnosis she received: epithelioid hemangioendothelioma, an extremely rare form of cancer, was ravaging her liver and lungs.
