While Linda is battling incurable secondary breast cancer, Anne who has suffered from two bouts of breast cancer, has been given the all-clear.

Although, she revealed in our exclusive shoot she still "panics" about her cancer returning.

"Whenever I get pain anywhere, I worry, but it’s a natural reaction," she told OK!

"When I got it 20 years ago, for a few years afterwards I’d panic every time I got ill. But then you learn to live with it.

"You can’t live every day thinking, “Has it come back?” Because otherwise the cancer has won."

The siblings, who’ve been battling cancer for more than 20 years have supported each other through through countless hospital visits and numerous treatments. Anne, 70, has fought two separate bouts of breast cancer since 2001, while Linda, 62, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006, which recurred in 2017 when it spread to her hip, and last year spread to her liver.

And because the family were still awaiting Linda's results to see if her cancer had spread, Anne described her happy news as "bittersweet."

“Normally I’d have been over the moon, but it was so hard to say I was clear of cancer at the time because Linda hadn’t had her results back," Anne said.

"But Linda was great. She didn’t make me feel bad. It was definitely bittersweet. I wish she’d had the same results I had, but like her oncologist told her, she could live for another 15 years.

“Finding out I’m cancer-free has definitely been bittersweet."

While Linda added: "My oncologist told me we’re in for a marathon, not a sprint.

"I was honestly delighted for Anne. I’ve never felt jealous of her. My cancer spread and it’s nobody’s fault."

Anne and Linda have put pen to paper to document their battle with cancer in their new book Stronger Together.

"It’s an emotional but uplifting read," Linda said.

"Our fans truly are amazing. They’ll buy our book before anyone else does," Anne added.
