Sheffield mum Sam Turner suffered breast cancer at the age of 30 and under went a double mastectomy, aged 36.

The mum to eight-year-old Emma, from Mosborough, has been writing a diary for The Star on her progress.

Sam said: “ Since my last entry everything has been going well.

“I’ve continued to heal and get stronger and have returned to work.

“The wounds are healing very well and I have a appointment to see my consultant next week to hopefully get on with the finishing touches.

“I’ve been very lucky regarding the way my body has healed and I haven’t had to have any fluid drained as my body has done it all by itself.

“I still have not been able buy a new bra yet as I’m not sure yet what size my new breasts will finish up as there is still a little ‘pumping up’ to be done.

“Another fantastic thing that has happened as been our third charity night held at Meersbrook Bowling Club where all my friends new and old and family came out in force.

“After a lot of asking and begging myself, my dad Graham and my step mum Pauline managed to gather enough raffle prizes and auction items together to raise more than £1,400 for Cancer Research UK we had a fantastic night supported by the bar staff at the bowling club but most of all by all the people that can and gave their money to support this charity that means so much to me and my family. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you all.”
