Emma Sinclair, who was diagnosed with the blood cancer on her 34th birthday, wants others to be aware of the 'red flag symptoms'.

A superfit Scots woman was diagnosed with leukaemia after finding herself breathless and having to constantly stop on a 10k race.

Emma, from Greenock, said: “It was the middle of the pandemic in October 2021 and I’d had a viral infection for a week. I took numerous Covid tests as I thought it was Covid but they were all negative. But further tests revealed devastating news; Emma was told that she had a rare case of chronic myeloid leukaemia on her 34th birthday on October 5, 2021. Once medics were able to control her stomach ulcer and internal bleeding, Emma was put onto a gruelling round of chemotherapy.

“I was always into yoga and Pilates prior to my diagnosis. I have managed to keep these up after I got of hospital and recovered and I feel these exercises really help me combat my fatigue, which is a side effect from the leukaemia. It also helps me breathe and be in the moment"
