Linda’s cancer battle

The Nolan sister is battling incurable secondary breast cancer and got the news in 2020 that the disease had spread to her liver.

Linda was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006, followed by cellulitis and lymphedema in her arm in 2007. She was diagnosed with secondary cancer on her pelvis in 2017.

Back in March 2020, she was told it was back and her liver was now affected.

Linda told the Mirror that she knew as soon as she entered the consultant’s office that it was bad news.

She revealed: “He turned to me and said the CT scan had shown something on my liver again. I asked if it was cancer and he said yes. It’s scary, I’m not going to lie. I try to be upbeat and positive but I had a really bad day when I got back.”

Linda said she put on a brave face for her famous singing sisters.

However, when she was back at home she said she broke down in tears and revealed she is “scared to death” of dying.

“I told my sisters I was fine but when I got inside my house, I cried. I needed to have that cry because I’m scared to death of dying,” she said.
