Demi’s heartbreaking cancer journey

Initially, she told fans in April that the surgery had been a success.

“I did it!” she said at the time. “Very sleepy and painful; catch up soon!

“The NHS Staff at QA Portsmouth have been unbelievable! And thank you for all your messages they have made me tearful.”

Before her operation, she revealed her fears that the lump could be cancerous.

“I went to go get the results today for my lump and they think it could be cancerous. I’ve got to go have it operated and removed,” she said on Instagram.

However, she tried to keep her spirits up at the time.

She said: “I know loads of women go through this so I’ll be fine. It might not even be cancerous. They’ve got to cut it out to be sure. I’m just a bit shocked at the moment. I’ll be ok, I’ll get it removed and it should be fine.”
