In an emotional post, the mother of two, wrote:

‘When we hadn’t yet recovered from one shock, life has surprised us again.

This time it’s me, that six-letter word I still struggle to write.

A few days ago during a check-up, doctors described a malignant ovarian tumour and I have been operated on.

Everything has turned out okay and fortunately we caught it in time but I’ve still got some months left fighting while I have the corresponding treatment.

I’m calm and confident everything is going to be okay. I know the road will be tough but will also have a happy ending.

I have the support of my family and friend and a great medical team.’
