London, Oct 29: Two years after she beat breast cancer, singer Bernie Nolan revealed she has been detected with the disease again, and says it is incurable this time. However, she has decided to fight it as long as she can.
The 52-year-old spoke for the first time about the diagnosis and has vowed to fight the deadly disease for as long as possible, saying “it can get stuffed”.
“It’s not curable. I’m on medication which is controlling it and people have lived for 12 years on these drugs,” dailymail.co.uk quoted Nolan as saying.
“Who knows what new treatments are around the corner? I refuse to sit around like I’ve got a death sentence. I’m going to fight this for ever. It can get stuffed,” she added.
In a newspaper interview, she said that during her tour of the musical “Chicago” earlier this year, she noticed a lump on the same side of her chest where she underwent mastectomy in 2010.
A biopsy was carried out and she was told the breast cancer had returned and this time it had spread to her brain, lungs, liver and bones.
