‘Tracey showed great courage, I Tried To do The same’

Woman's Own - - FROM THE HEART -

Cathy, 43, says: I was hor­ri­fied when I found out Tracey had can­cer but had to be strong for her and stay pos­i­tive. That’s the way we’ve al­ways been as a fam­ily. My ap­proach with her was, ‘It is what it is, it’s cur­able and you’ll be fine.’ I told her that we’d be on this jour­ney to­gether and Tracey showed great courage. When I got di­ag­nosed I tried to do the same. I knew, what­ever I was go­ing to face, I could pick up the phone for a chat. And of course, bat­tling can­cer, you go through a lot of emo­tions and feel­ings, Tracey was there to let me know the way I was feel­ing was OK. We were close be­fore, but this has def­i­nitely made our bond even stronger. We’re best friends.
