Secondary Sisters: Friends with incurable breast cancer set up support group

Two women with incurable breast cancer whose lives were "flipped upside down" by the diagnosis have set up a group to offer hope to others.

Nicky Newman and Laura Middleton-Hughes, both 31, have stage four cancer that has spread around their bodies.

When Nicky, from Guildford, was told her secondary cancer was incurable, she said it sent her into a "blind panic".

The pair said they hoped their online community, Secondary Sisters, would help others facing such difficult news.

Laura, from Norwich, said it had given them both a "positive, therapeutic, way of talking about our cancer".

"We both potentially face a very bumpy future, but we do have a future and we are going to live it," she said.

"And if we can help even one person feel better about themselves and like they are part of a community, that's amazing."

Both women are supporting Stand Up To Cancer, a joint fundraising campaign from Cancer Research UK and Channel 4.
