Sky News presenter Jacquie Beltrao is over the moon after receiving a scan which showed no evidence of cancer amid her battle with stage four breast cancer.
The reporter shared a sweet video to share the good news, holding up a ‘Breaking News’ sign and saying: ‘So I’ve got some breaking news. The scans are in, and…’
Holding up a sign that says: ‘No evidence of cancer’, Jacquie said: ‘I can’t believe it. I just can’t believe it. I know it’s not forever but I’m gonna take it for now – a bit of good news at last and I’m so happy!’
The 56-year-old added on Instagram: ‘I know this isn’t permanent things could have changed again by my next scan, that the drugs stop working or whatever but…. for now in the here and now this is the best I could hope for.
‘I lost my beloved Mother-in-law Anna yesterday – it was a horrible day. This news, my scan news, came two hours later and helped us all. Anna would have been so happy and relieved. I’m sure she is still and is raising a glass in heaven as we speak, I would have loved to have shared this news with her ?
‘But I’m sharing it with you all because I’ve had so much lovely support this year – it’s made a world of difference in a terrible year. I hope people can get a little bit of hope from my story. I’m not cured – make no mistake – there is no cure for Stage 4 cancer but for now the scan is clear. It’s the best I can hope for. For now ……and I’m so so so grateful.’
Fans and friends are thrilled for her, with Piers Morgan writing on Twitter: ‘Brilliant!’ and Eddie Hearn adding: ‘Amazing news’.
Carole Vorderman told her: ‘The best best best best best news. Congratulations wonderful woman.’
Jacquie was first diagnosed with breast cancer in December 2013. She announced in June last year that it had returned.
She has since been sharing her journey on social media, documenting her hospital visits and encouraging people to check themselves for lumps.
