“I’m determined to do whatever I can to help raise awareness by sharing my experience. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2023 and melanoma, an aggressive form of skin cancer, this year and had it not been for the diligence and care of my physicians, my situation could have been so much worse,” Sarah said.

The author went on saying, “It was a busy 2023 and I almost put off my routine mammogram, but my sister Jane convinced me to go. After undergoing a mastectomy and reconstruction, I could only hope that I was in the clear, which is why a new diagnosis of skin cancer came as a shock.”

Regarding support from seemingly Prince Andrew, and their daughters Princess Eugenie and Beatrice, Sarah said: “I’m now in the best hands and feeling positive with the support of my family.”

She also urged that days could make the difference between life and death, “so please don’t skip or put off your health checks and urge your loved ones to go to theirs.”
