The 51-year-old property expert received the news of her breast cancer diagnosis in August, but the mother of four remained upbeat. Despite her fears, Sarah has remained strong and is incredibly determined to fight back against the disease. She is due to undergo chemotherapy and a mastectomy in the new year, as well as radiotherapy.
She is a mother of four, aged Billy, 18, Charlie, 16, Rafferty, 14, and Laurie, 12. It has been reported that Sarah is planning to move back to London and quit her job as a TV presenter so she can focus on her health.
During her treatment, she has been sharing updates on her journey on Instagram and has also shaved her head in a bid to cut down on the amount of chemotherapy that she would have to take. Her hair has been donated to the Little Princess Trust, which makes wigs for unwell children.
Ahead of her latest surgery, her sons gave fans an update on their mum’s health by sharing a photo. The brothers, who form a band called the Entitled Sons, shared an emotional snap of their mum in hospital as she received her latest treatment.
They also showed off special “tattoos” which she had received ahead of her surgery at the Royal Marsden and Yeovil hospitals. The presenter had previously been forced to postpone her last session of chemo because her white blood cell count was too low, but she has now finally received her treatment.
The ‘tattoos’ are markings on her chest that are used as a guide for where the surgeon will be able to perform her surgery. They have been shared on the Instagram page of their group, The Entitled Sons, which has a large following, with the boys writing: “Mum finally got some tattoos!”
Beeny was diagnosed with breast cancer in August and had to postpone her last session of chemotherapy because her white blood cell count was too low. She is set to have a mastectomy and radiotherapy this year and has been very open about her diagnosis on social media.
She revealed in August that she had a lump, which led to a biopsy and a breast cancer diagnosis. She said that she was told that there was a “high chance of a cure” and that it had not spread. She urged women to check their breasts regularly and to trust their instincts.
It has been a long journey, but the 53-year-old has been supported throughout her illness by her family. She has four children, and is married to artist Graham Swift.
After moving from London to Somerset, she has been renovating a former dairy farm and adapting to the rural lifestyle. Her show, Sarah Beeny’s New Life in the Country, is now back for another series and will air on Channel 4.
Ahead of the latest series, she has shared a heartfelt message to her followers. She wrote: “Not sure what is making the sun shine the most – 2 days into steroids (happy pills) – no more chemo or @the_entitled_sons releasing their best song yet xx #finishedchemo HEAVENKNOWS!
