Sarah Harding has recently revealed that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer, stating that cancer has spread to other parts of her body.
The 38-year-old took to Twitter to reveal that she was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year.
The Girls Aloud singer explained she received the “devastating news” about cancer metastasis this month.
She said, “I’m currently undergoing weekly chemotherapy sessions and I am fighting as hard as I possibly can.” The singer also shared a photo of herself in a hospital.
Thanking NHS staff, her family and friends for support, Harding added she was “trying to keep positive.”
Harding decided to go public with her breast cancer diagnosis after being seen in hospital last week.
Girls Aloud bandmate Cheryl responded to the Harding’s news by tweeting a broken heart emoji.
Nadine Coyle commented, “I love you! You have always been able to achieve miracles when needed! I am here for all the way & always will be!”
“It goes without saying that this is blindsiding. @SarahNHarding you’re so loved and supported,” tweeted Nicola Roberts.
In 2002, Harding shot to fame as a contestant on Popstars: The Rivals, an ITV talent show aimed to find both a new girl band and boy band.
She was voted into the group that became Girls Aloud, which went on to have several UK hits.
In 2012, Girls Aloud reunited after a short hiatus but they announced their split in 2013.
Since then, Harding has taken on several acting roles, including roles in Run for Your Wife, and St. Trinian’s 2: The Legend of Fritton’s Gold.
Harding appeared on the Channel 4 reality show – The Jump – in 2016, but she had to force to pull out after picking up a knee injury. In 2017, Harding won Celebrity Big Brother.
