This Morning favourite Heather Bone issues heartbreaking update amid battle with cancer

Such sad news for Heather and her family

ITV This Morning star Heather Bone has issued a heartbreaking update amid her battle with cancer.

Heather, 41, has become a firm favourite with This Morning viewers ever since she won £2,000 in an edition of Dosh on your Doorstep.

The terminally ill mum-of-two from West Sussex was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2019 and then given the all-clear just before her 40th birthday last summer.

However, she was told later in 2020 that the cancer had come back and spread to her brain and she had just months to live.

What did This Morning star Heather Bone say in her update?

Courageous Heather has been documenting her journey on her Instagram page, Heather’s Cancer Journey.

“Going to top up meds again and struggling to walk now in a wheelchair.”
