She was told she had stage three ovarian cancer following her hysterectomy, where she was shocked by the news that her cancer had spread beyond her ovaries.

“She’s a good pal, she’s got a spare room, medical expertise and she’s really good at making a cup of tea.”

She added: “The hysterectomy was a really big operation so I’m recovering slowly.

“Before I left the hospital they managed to give me the pathology.

“It was a very, very tense moment and it turns out that I’ve got stage three b ovarian cancer which wasn’t the result I was hoping for, but nobody gets the results they want I suppose.”


She went on to admit that the diagnosis had shocked her loved ones, writing: “Stage three ovarian cancer, like many cancers, is treatable and people live with it.

“It’s been quite a shock. It’s been quite a shock to all of us. My husband and Ashley are back at home and they are just processing all this information too.

“There are people watching this who live for years with treatable cancers and that’s what I’m hoping to do as well.

“I’d like to say I’m brave and I’m strong but I’m really really vulnerable and frightened as well because that’s what this kind of news does to people, but I’m also optimistic.

“I’m going to get chemotherapy, and then whatever treatment comes after this.”
