Linda Nolan pens emotional letter to Sarah Harding amid their cancer diagnosis

Former Celebrity Big Brother star Linda Nolan has penned an open letter to Sarah Harding, after the Girls Aloud star revealed her heartbreaking cancer diagnosis.

Coleen Nolan's sister, 61, has shared some words of support to Sarah, 38, after she revealed last week she had been diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year, and she had received the devastating news that it had spread to other parts of her body.

Linda, who is battling liver cancer alongside secondary breast cancer, reflected back on her cancer journey so far, in a bid to lift Sarah's spirits.

Writing in new! magazine, she said: "Sarah, I was so shocked and devastated to hear about your breast cancer diagnosis.

"If I can say anything to you, the support you'll get from the public will be amazing – it was overwhelming for my sister Anne [who is also suffering from breast cancer] and me.

"People are genuinely lovely and want to wish you the best. Initially, I didn't want people to pity me, but it was weight off my shoulders when it came out and I hope you're feeling a sense of relief too."

She went on: "This is my third time of being diagnosed with cancer now and each time is just as scary.

"But once you get your head around it – and you've got a supportive family, which I know you have – before you know it you'll be at the end of your chemo treatments."

Linda continued: "I started my chemo in June and thought 'I'm never going to get to September,' and now I've got two treatments left. And you get into a routine with it.

"Although you're feeling rubbish, remember it's treatment to make you better. As you've said, the doctors are amazing and give you so much support, but don't be frightened to ask questions."

Linda's incurable cancer is in her liver and she previously battled breast cancer in 2006, cellulitis and lymphoedema in her arm in 2007 and secondary cancer on her pelvis in 2017.

Her sister Anne (the oldest of the Nolan sisters) has stage three breast cancer, the most serious being stage four.
