Linda Nolan says she ‘won’t survive’ as she gives cancer update

Linda Nolan has said she knows she won’t survive her cancer battle as she gave an update on her health.

The singer – who once performed with her sisters in The Nolans – is currently battling her third resurgence of the disease in her liver. She underwent treatment in 2006 for breast cancer and in March she said on Good Morning Britain that she was “shocked and scared” when she found out the cancer had spread to her brain.

Speaking to the Mirror earlier this week, Linda said she had been to pick up her latest scan results on Monday and revealed the news.

NottinghamshireLive reports that she said: “You walk towards that consultant’s door and tell yourself “I’m OK”. Then you reach it and know you’re really not. I took sister Anne with me on Monday for my scan results and we were both nervous. But this time, it was good news.

“For starters, I was actually walking – my mobility has improved for some time, and deep down I’d hoped that was a good sign (although I’m still forgetting words – but at least that’s funny).

“Turns out, I was right. ‘I can honestly say these scans are great,’ said my lovely consultant. Those words. Few could sound sweeter. The relief rolled over me like a wave. Thank god. My tumours are stable and haven’t got any bigger. The chemo is keeping them at bay for now. So, we carry on. Every three weeks, for as long as I can tolerate it.

“I went off to have my sixth cycle then. It’s become a way of life now. I have my cancer book – a title I never thought I’d have in my library – with all my bloods, weight and so on recorded (I’ve lost 4kg, although I reckon I could live off what’s left for some time). I know the nurses — they’re a great ear, they listen if you need to chat or are feeling low. And I people-watch, listen to the bleeps and the clapping when those finishing treatment ring the bell. That’s lovely, I’m always happy for them, but I rang that bell twice. And I know now I won’t be ringing it again.

“That doesn’t make me angry though, we’re all on our own pathways here on the great chemo ward conveyor belt. And for now, mine runs straight ahead.”

Linda has moved in with her sister Denise due to her health, but previously said she was “not giving up.” Her sister Anne was diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time three years ago and is now cancer-free, but their sister Bernie sadly died in 2013 after being diagnosed with breast cancer.

Linda said the family history of cancer had been “really scary” for her other sisters, including Denise, Maureen and Coleen. In July this year, Coleen said she had been diagnosed with skin cancer.
