Sarah Harding (38), one member of the popular five piece singing group Girls Aloud, took to her social media to reveal to fans she had been battling with a breast cancer diagnosis since earlier this year.
Unfortunately the singer had to break more news to fans that the cancer had further spread to other parts of her body, calling the latest news ‘devastating’ but assuring her followers she was ‘fighting hard’.
“I’ve not posted on here for so long, thank you to everyone who has reached out to check in on me, it really does mean a lot. I feel now is the right time to share what’s been going on.” Explained the singer.
“There’s no easy way to say this and actually it doesn’t even feel real writing this, but here goes. Earlier this year I was diagnosed with breast cancer and a couple of weeks ago I received the devastating news that the cancer has advanced to other parts of my body.
“I’m currently undergoing weekly chemotherapy sessions and I am fighting as hard as I possibly can. I understand this might be shocking to read on social media and that really isn’t my intention.
“But last week it was mentioned online that I had been seen in hospital, so I feel now is the time to let people know what’s going on and this is the best way I can think of to do so.
Ms Harding, keeping positive, had a number of thanks in conclusion.
“My amazing mum, family and close friends are helping me through this, and I want to say a thank you to the wonderful NHS doctors and nurses who have been and continue to be heroes. I am doing my very best to keep positive and will keep you updated here with how I’m getting on.
“In the meantime I hope you’ll all understand and respect my request for privacy during this difficult time. Sending you all so much love.”
