“I was diagnosed with stage two Hodgkin lymphoma when I was 23, after finding a lump on my neck that looked like a mosquito bite. I started chemo and was told to expect nausea, lethargy, aches and pains, digestive issues and hair loss. After my diagnosis, it was important to me to make sure I took the piss out of cancer! I opted not to wear a wig, and instead took advantage of the hilarious...

“My 2-year-old and 5-year-old don’t worry that I’m poorly, they just want their dinner! I was diagnosed with breast cancer in July 2016, and began chemotherapy straight away. I had an emergency mastectomy and more chemotherapy, and right now I’m having radiotherapy. My wedding is planned for July, one year after my diagnosis, to make sure I have a focus. My partner and sons have been so...

“When I was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin lymphoma in October 2012, my oncologist told me it was an aggressive form of cancer. I thought, ‘well I’m going to be aggressive back!’ I love my life too much and I was determined to get through it. I had six cycles of chemotherapy, followed by maintenance treatment, but unfortunately the cancer came back soon after. My doctors suggested I enrol on a...

“I began volunteering when my cousin, Georgie, was going through treatment for cancer for the third time. He sadly died six months later at just 17. He was always telling me how proud he was of the work I was doing and how he felt sure I would make a difference in his memory. This just spurred me on. I quickly became more involved, becoming a Campaigns Ambassador and volunteering at...

“My dad died of cancer on 29 July 2007. It was his 46th birthday. I was 18 at the time, just about to start university and I not only lost a parent, but a best friend too. A lot of people always used to say how similar we were. He got me into playing rugby, took me to see our beloved Tottenham Hotspur, and we’d play golf together when we could. When he was diagnosed with cancer, I always...

“The first lot of chemo was fine, but the second drug combination was a lot worse. I felt extremely tired and irritable, and all my hair fell out. I found that quite devastating. I wanted to do all the chemo on my own – I thought I could handle it and my husband Greg had the kids to look after. But after the first round I came home and just sort of collapsed through the door. Greg said enough...

“Losing my hair wasn’t quite as bad as losing the feeling in my fingers and toes, as I could no longer do my hobby of cross stitching. I was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia in March 2016. Breaking the news to my family and friends was heart-breaking. They all wanted to do something to help but there was little they could do other than just be there for me. I gave up my university...

“Last July, my sister Tara was diagnosed with leukaemia, at 28 years old. Tara started treatment straight away and needed a bone marrow transplant soon after. Fortunately I was a bone marrow match, and the operation went ahead in December. Whilst in hospital, Tara got a number of different infections that her body was unable to fight, and she died at the end of December. It was a very...
