'Coronation Street' actress Sally Dyvenor admits she thought she would never get cancer because she led a healthy lifestyle
Sally Dynevor thought she wouldn't get cancer because she was healthy and ran regularly.
The 'Coronation Street' star - whose alter-ego Sally Webster battled breast cancer at the same time as the actress - admits she never expected to fall ill because she was confident she lived a healthy life.
She explained: "I can't stress this enough. I never thought this would happen to me.
"I just want to say that because women out there might go, 'Well, it's not going to happen to me' - because that's what I used to say. I thought, 'It won't happen to me, I'm really healthy and I run' and I just thought 'It's not going to happen' and it did."
Sally discovered a lump on her breast last year, but waited six months before having it checked out by a doctor.
Following chemotherapy, the 47-year-old actress admits she feels "amazing" to have "come through" those difficult times.
She told RTE Ten: "Luckily I've come through the other end. It was a good prognosis from the beginning so you just have to stay strong for those six months.
"I'm just really glad that I've kind of got my life back on track again and I'm doing normal things.
"I feel amazing but the scary thing is I felt amazing before... but yeah, I feel really, really good."
