Their sisters have been incredibly supportive

"Going bald was traumatic and I cried a lot," she said. "When the hospital couldn’t provide me with a cold cap that fitted, I went into meltdown. Later, after a gin and tonic, I finally had my head shaved like Anne. When I looked in the mirror, I could see my sister Bernie staring back at me.

"Although I originally vowed never to go out without a wig or a cap, it feels like second nature and nobody bats an eyelid. Now that I’ve finished chemo, I can’t wait for my hair to grow back."

Looking to the future, Linda and Anne describe themselves as "cautiously optimistic", as they face the next phase of their journey to defeat cancer.
