Lucy Bayet Cancer Battle
Popular Bravissimo model Lucy Bayet's cancer battle started when she got the official news on the 6th of July 2010. Lucy was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma the same disease singer Delta Goodrem battled.
This particular nasty cancer involves the damage of white blood cells that multiply uncontrollably, enlarging lymph nodes and forming tumours.
"I got the diagnosis properly on July 6 but I'd known about it (that there was a problem) for months," she said.
"I was convinced I'd pulled a muscle moving house.
"A photographer in the industry told me to get it checked out and the doctor said `it's in your lymphs; it's not a pulled muscle you crazy girl'," she added.
What a charming doctor. You're told you have cancer and you are crazy!
Lucy, an Australian has returned home to Adelaide to tackle the disease with a positive outlook. We hope she is doing well.
Don't forget October is Breast Cancer Awareness month so buy anything pink that helps breast cancer research and do your little bit. It all helps.
