Sarah & Jackie Tidey
Sarah was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, Stage 3C in September 2015 aged 47. Following a hysterectomy and debulking surgery she had six sessions of chemotherapy. Her Mum, Jackie, with whom she has always been close has been a great support to her throughout treatment and since the recurrence of her cancer in November last year. They both enjoy books, art, music, movies and spending time with friends and family. One of the positive things to come out of Sarah’s diagnosis has been all the time they have spent together.
