Roisin Pelan is a mum who was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 32. When the cancer returned after three years in remission, she was put on lifelong chemotherapy. Now, however, her life-saving treatment has been deferred as hospitals struggle with the coronavirus pandemic and her weakened immune system means she is too vulnerable to attend sessions. She feels torn as she would be terrified of getting Covid - but without cancer treatment, she is fearful her cancer will return as she feels that is what has been keeping her alive.
