A mum-of-six has been told she is completely free of cancer a year after COUGHING UP a tumour.

Claire Osborn, 38, had the shock of her life when she started coughing and a 2cm lump flew out of her mouth.

She took the lump to her doctor and was told it was a type of cancer called metastatic adenocarcinoma.

She had an operation and scans to see if there were any more tumours lurking but after a final scan last week doctors told Claire, from Holbrooks, Coventry, that she remains entirely free of cancer.

Claire told her local newspaper: "I feel like it's been a miracle. I feel I've been reborn, everything has changed. I really feel I've been given a second chance at life.

"I have various conditions including Asperger's and fibromyalgia but I don't sit down and mope now.

"I had become unsociable and wouldn't go out and I used to get upset about the smallest things, like if I broke something around the house.

"But now I realise that life is far more important than a broken item."
