Terminal cancer sufferer struggling to find rental in Christchurch

A Christchurch woman with cancer has a massive hurdle to get through - and it's not just chemo but finding a home to live in.

Krystal Brown has been staying in a sleep-out and needs a bigger place to accommodate family who'll be caring for her.

Struggling to find a home and battling the disease has been a major challenge, but she is determined to face it head on and share her story in the hope of securing a permanent place to stay.
