VIDEO: A true survivor – Loga Crichton

Imagine being diagnosed not once but twice with breast cancer and then finding out you are a cancer gene carrier – The Fono’s Social Services Team Leader Loga Crichton has had more than her fair share of trials and tribulations. Loga opens up to Tagata Pasifika about her journey to becoming a published poet.

The Gift, a published book of poems by Loga is filled with poems she wrote after her beloved husband Bill who passed away. Writing her poems helped her sleep and was therapeutic for the mother of seven. Loga has also written about her battles with breast cancer.

Her hope is that her poems may help others through tough times of their own, with a streak of strength and hope coming through in her poems.
