Jennie was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2017. Last year, she walked in The Show London.

Jennie The Show

I was diagnosed in August 2017. I had gone to the GP about another matter, but had a hunch something else wasn’t quite right.

Two weeks later, I was told I had an invasive tumour and needed chemotherapy, a mastectomy and radiotherapy.

I was more scared than I had ever been in my life.

But that feeling didn’t last. Once I started my treatment and knew the cancer hadn’t spread, I regained my fighting spirit and never looked back.

I underestimated how devastating the mastectomy would be but I knew that after it I would be cancer free.

I found the end of my treatment very strange. I was expected to just go back to being me and move on. A friend I met as a result of my diagnosis had been a model in The Show London before and encouraged me to apply. I had also attended The Show eight years ago when another friend modelled. It was an amazing experience.

The Show London was a hugely emotional day. My mum bought a table for both the afternoon and evening show to treat her friends and family.

It’s been an incredibly hard journey, which still isn’t over, but The Show marked the start of the rest of my life.
