Berks Mum With Cancer Looks For "Positives"

A Berkshire Mum has been telling Heart she now spends her life looking for the positives after being diagnosed with two different forms of primary cancer.

Doctors told Gina Squires from Slough she had breast cancer in 2012 over the next three years she received treatment and responded really well.

In 2015, Gina was diagnosed with kidney cancer which was in no way linked to her first diagnosis.

She's admitted "when you hit the down, it's so difficult, it's not even as if it's a 'why me?', it's I feel rotten, I don't feel well, I feel so tired, when's this ever going to stop?"

But, Gina tells Heart even when things got really dark nurses from Macmillan kept her going.

"I'm not saying that every single person can do this, because they can't - but it's really revealing who you are, and trying to do the very best we can, with our own lives, whichever stage we're in, and to create value with it."

Gina was supported by Macmillan's Well Being Programme in Berkshire and she's raising money for that cause with 'An Evening Of Jazz' this weekend.

It's on at the Norden Farm Centre for the Arts in Maidenhead, 8pm, Saturday 10th September.
