“I was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer on St George's Day 2017. Halfway through my chemo, I was rushed into hospital and found out my bowel had burst! I had emergency surgery and a stoma fitted. I was very poorly but I’m due to have surgery to reverse this, now I’ve had a lumpectomy and radiotherapy and am cancer free. My six year old little angel kept me going through it all and I met the love of my life during my treatment after a messy break up with my partner of ten years. I learnt that I am stronger than I thought, and worth someone who appreciates me!” This is #CancerRightNow

“My advice to anyone out there going through the same is to remain strong and positive, but above all believe in yourself and believe that you can beat this. I've defied the odds twice with two major illnesses. I feel very blessed to be here today and to be able to enjoy my family, friends and most simple things in my life. Never take anyone or anything for granted. It can be taken away so quickly.” This is #CancerRightNow
for Mandy, who underwent treatment for triple negative breast cancer last year and is now in remission.
“I found out I was pregnant five days after I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I had a mastectomy and full lymph node removal, and my husband and I became parents for the first time in September 2017. The last 18 months have been extremely turbulent but I’m now cancer free, with just drug side effects and lymphedema to deal with. While pregnancy and cancer aren’t a great combination, I will always be grateful that the timing worked as it did as I now get to enjoy my wonderful ‘miracle’ baby.” This is Lucy’s #CancerRightNow
“I want to show people that no matter what difficulties you’re going through, you can bounce back.” Holly’s dream of going to dance school was cut short when she was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia at just 15 years old. Fast forward to today, she’s now five years in remission, and is back to full fitness. This is Holly’s way of getting payback on cancer for this year’s @standup2canceruk
campaign. Holly, we #StandUpToCancer
“I think cancer’s a bully. We need to sucker-punch it, and we need to knock it out.” Steve was diagnosed with bowel cancer six years ago. Following surgery and his recovery, he’s now getting payback on cancer by taking on abseiling and climbing challenges – as well as raising awareness of the importance of early diagnosis among different groups. Get payback on cancer, like Steve, by getting involved in this year’s #StandUpToCancer
campaign – link in bio.
“Do I save my leg, or do I save my life?” Avid golfer Chris has osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer, which was diagnosed after doctors discovered a tumour in his leg when he was just 19. Following amputation, he went through over a year of successful treatment, but in October 2017, two further tumours were discovered. Unfortunately, doctors then told Chris his cancer was inoperable. Now 22, Chris isn’t letting any of this stop him from getting out on the golf course! Chris was filmed for this year’s @standup2canceruk
campaign. Join us this month as we #StandUpToCancer
for all those who face a cancer diagnosis, like Chris.
