Yesterday the news broke in the press that actress Caroline Aherne has been suffering and receiving treatment for lung cancer for the last five months.
Well now the Royle Family star has said that she worried she would die during the treatment for the disease.
A source close to the actress has spoke to The Sun and said:
“Put it like this — at times in the hospital there were very grave areas of concern. The chemotherapy was really intensive.
“But she’s a fighter. After two weeks of recovery at home, she came on leaps and bounds. She has a positive outlook and is winning this battle.
“Caroline wanted to keep the illness under wraps while undergoing treatment.
“She didn’t lose any weight during chemo but she did lose all her hair.
“The one group of people she really wants to thank are the Macmillan nurses, who were brilliant throughout. Over the next few months she faces further chest X-rays and blood tests. She will be in remission for five years.”
We wish her all the best.
