A professional singer who is battling cancer is determined to live life to the full despite her diagnosis and is still gigging five times a week.
Abi Flynn says she when she was given her Hodgkin Lymphoma diagnosis in September it gave her a new lease for life.
The 27-year-old from Brighton told the Mirror: "When I got cancer it made me focus and I thought 'I have to live every day to the full’.
"The music has been healing me, I really feel now like I’m living.”
Abi has recorded a video of her singing Burt Bacharach's What the World Needs Now Is Love as she sat on her hospital bed during her chemotherapy treatment.
She started singing full time from the age of 22 and in May signed a record deal with Tru Thoughts.
Her first EP, of songs written before her diagnosis, is called Ambiguous and is released this Friday.
