BBC newsreader Rachael Bland, 40, today revealed she has just “days to live” after doctors dealt the crushing blow that her bre@st cancer is incurable.
Writing on Twitter, the 5 Live broadcaster said: “In the words of the legendary Frank S – I’m afraid the time has come my friends.
“And suddenly. I’m told I’ve only got days. It’s very surreal.
“Thank you so much for all the support I’ve received.”
The 40-year-old mother has been documenting her life with cancer in a podcast called You, Me And The Big C, which she co-hosts with The Sun’s Deborah James, 36, and Lauren Mahon, 32.
Signing off her final post with an “Au revoir”, followed by two kisses, Rachael said Deborah and Lauren would continue their inspirational podcast.
The second series of You, Me And The Big C launched just weeks ago, with the trio sharing their brutally honest view of what life with cancer is really like.
Rachael revealed she was in a “race against time” in July, having been diagnosed with bre@st cancer in November 2016.
But, in May this year, she was told her cancer was incurable and her only hopes rested with a clinical trial, to buy her more time with husband Steve and their son, Freddie, three.
