A woman who was told she only had months to live has now been told the miraculous news she is 'cancer free'.

Hannah Curr, 33, from Beeston in Nottinghamshire, was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive breast cancer in June last year.

After six months of chemotherapy, she was then told the cancer appeared to have spread to her brain - and that she may only have six months to live.

She knew she was at risk of developing breast cancer after her mother, aunt, grandmother and great grandmother all died from the disease.

However, her consultant at Nottingham City Hospital has now told her there is no evidence of cancer in her body and the brain scan was an 'unexplained anomaly'.

Her favourite artist Bon Jovi recorded a message for Hannah during her treatment - and she's gone on to raise money for Nottingham's hospitals by performing his songs, with friends, for 24 hours.

In nine months since her diagnosis, Ms Curr had:

  • 14 sessions of chemotherapy

  • 11 scans

  • 1 pulmonary embolism

  • 2 blood transfusions

  • a double mastectomy

  • 15 sessions of radiotherapy

Hannah is now focusing on getting back to life as usual, but will be planting a tree today in Allestree Park in Derby - where she is originally from.

It was initially planned to be a 'remembrance tree,' where her family could go to reflect after her death - but is now going to be a place of celebration!

She's also busy raising money for Nottingham hospitals.
