Julia Bradbury shares kids' reaction to devastating cancer diagnosis

Countryfile presenter Julia Bradbury has revealed she has breast cancer at the age of 51 and will undergo a mastectomy next month

The Countryfile star revealed she is having a mastectomy next month to remove a six centimetre tumour from her left breast.She broke the news of her devastating diagnosis to her children Zeph, 10, and six-year-old twins, Zena and Xanthe, last week.“They were OK. I have told them to ask whatever they want... how honest can you be with children without scaring them?” she told the Mail on Sunday.

The 51-year-old said her daughter Xanthe asked: “Mummy can I still hug you?”“I said ‘Yes darling, I need your hugs more than ever.’” Julia broke the news to her three children, who she shares with husband Gerard Cunningham, while walking around their garden at home.

She used the ‘living example’ of her own parents, both of whom have survived cancer, as a promise she would be fine too.Doctors have caught the cancer early, giving the mum-of-three the best chance of survival.During the surgery, they will also take tissue from her lymph nodes to check if the disease has spread to other parts of her body. headtopics.com

At this stage they are confident it hasn’t. This means that despite the tumour being a significant size, she may not need chemotherapy treatment.Brave Julia said: “It is quite good on the scale on cancers. But as with all tumours, until you are in there you never know.”

Before she found out the news it was cancer and was undergoing “many biopsies”, the TV presenter said the only thing she could think about was her kids.She said a mastectomy is a “shattering” thing to go through “but it means I am going to live and be here for my children”.

“As it is I am going to lose my breast. I trust that one day I will look down on it and think that was the fight of my life and I have the ultimate battle scar to prove it."Julia said she “cried so hard” when she learned of the tragic death of Girls Aloud singer Sarah Harding aged just 39 earlier this month.

She is now urging other women to regularly check their breasts and has become an ambassador for Ovarian Cancer Action. In an Instagram post, Julia wrote: “This isn’t something I expected to be sharing with you all.“I’ve been diagnosed with breast cancer in the last few weeks & need urgent surgery. I will share what I can with you but I’m sure you understand that I need to focus on my family & treatment, so I won’t be able to respond & engage on here as much as usual. headtopics.com

“Please self-check regularly & if you have any unexplained pain, tenderness or lumps, please ask for checks & follow ups. And ask for a second opinion if you’re not happy.“I’m hoping that by reading this, other women will have the confidence to keep checking & talking to their doctors, especially if they feel something is “not quite right”.”
