Dan Walker, 46, sent his congratulations to Sky Sports presenter Jacquie Beltrao, 56, after she announced she is now cancer free. The newsreader had been suffering with stage 4 breast cancer, having beaten the disease in 2013 before being re-diagnosed again last year.
Wonderful news Jacquie
Just two months ago, she revealed that her cancer had spread to her bones and she was undergoing treatment, but over the weekend the former Olympic gymnast had some amazing news for her followers and, like many, Dan was over the moon for her.
In view of her 82,500 Twitter followers, Jacquie shared a video, saying: “So, I’ve got some breaking news, scans are in…” before showing a card reading: “No evidence of cancer.”
“I can’t believe it,” beamed Jacquie, before adding: “I just can’t believe it, look, I know it’s not forever but I’m going to take it for now.
“A bit of good news at last and I’m so happy!”
Since breaking the good news, Jacquie was inundated with support from followers and celebrity pals.
Dan sent his love to his fellow broadcaster, penning: “Wonderful news Jacquie,” before she thanked him for his kind words.
Carol Vorderman tweeted: “The best best best best best news, congratulations wonderful woman!”
While Piers Morgan said: “Brilliant!”
“JACQUIE! This is the best news. So happy,” penned Sophy Ridge.
The presenter later went on to share the video to her Instagram, noting that it was “amazing bl**dy progress”.
Jacquie said: “So very grateful to my oncologist Muireann, my surgeon Mr Sharma, my guardians and guides.
“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.”
She continued: “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.”
