Ann’s story

"I was never one to get ill - thank goodness I decided to go along to see my GP.

“I felt I led a healthy life In fact, the morning of my diagnosis I had been for a nice swim at a local outdoor pool. However, when I coughed up a spot of blood after cleaning my teeth I thought I should go along to see my GP. It was 16th December, when after a series of tests, I was diagnosed with lung cancer.

“I count myself extremely fortunate to have received such excellent world class care. Each year almost 40,000 people are diagnosed with lung cancer in the UK, making it the second most common cancer after breast cancer.

“If you notice any changes to your body get checked out.  The earlier cancer is diagnosed, the better the chance of successful treatments. Cancer is treatable, even beatable.”
