Kirsty's Story

Kirsty Louise Streek, was a vibrant individual, that happened to achieve so much in a short space of time. From graduating at University, travelling the world and obtaining a position in the NHS. Kirsty was very family orientated and her friends were not just friends but her family too. Kirsty was always there for everyone, from the smallest of gestures; making sure you had a birthday card, to checking in on you to see how you were doing, even when she was facing challenges herself. Kirsty became a qualified Physiotherapist, obtaining her last promotion in 2021. As a paediatric physio, Kirsty was loved by many children and their families, assisting with supporting them with challenging medical conditions.

Kirsty’s personality and compassion meant that she had many thank you letters from families that she supported. Kirsty volunteered for the Paralympics in 2012, which was a trait that she continued in giving up her time. Although working hard for the NHS, Kirsty gave her time to a local rugby team, Locks Heath Pumas, and as the medical Physio, would ensure that the team were fit and able to battle it out on the field every Saturday.


However, in June 2017, Kirsty was diagnosed with Angio Sarcoma. An operation was undertaken in July 2017, at which point Kirsty was then deemed cancer free. Due to the nature of this disease it meant several check-ups would still be needed for the next 10 years. On top of this, Kirsty was also diagnosed with MS. Unfortunately in January 2022 Kirsty’s Angio Sarcoma cancer was back, this then meant it was a life limiting disease and Kirsty passed away in October 2022 at the age of 32.


Living the final months of her life with positivity, getting married, sharing time with friends and family, going on several trips and even returning to work for a short time. As previously mentioned, Kirsty always put others before her, therefore, we are wanting to establish a charity that enables her to continue to do this. Kirsty volunteered to support the Royal Marsden (where she started her treatment), doing the annual charity walk, as well as supporting several charity events after her first diagnosis. She didn’t let anything get in the way of her kind nature.


We want to continue her legacy and build a Foundation that focuses on supporting the charities close to her heart (The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, Sarcoma UK and MS Society UK). We will also support young people with terminal cancer, by supporting Kirsty’s close friend, who is finding new ways to style and colour wigs for those undergoing chemotherapy. We will also support young people with advice, places of support and facilities in hospitals. Our other goal is to support the friends & families of those who passed at a young age due to cancer by offering support groups.

Those who knew Kirsty have all seen what she did for the community and the support she gave to people around her. She was an amazing wife, daughter, sister, auntie, and friend. We therefore want to spread this support via an organisation that will give a little help to those that need it. Future fundraising events will be advised on both this website and the Instagram account dedicated to her. #bemorekirsty
