My Second Chance

Jessica Horton, from Surrey, says: "Prime features agency placed my story with the Mail Online, Woman’s Own and Chat. I was only 30 when I was diagnosed with neuroendocrine cancer - a rare cancer of the adrenal glands - and given one year to live. It was a terrible shock. But then a surgeon who’d heard of my case, contacted me out of the blue, and after surgery, my prognosis went from one year to ten years. It was wonderful news, giving me time to do some of the things that I really wanted, like marrying my partner Rob. I also wanted to give back and started fundraising for charity Neuroendocrine Cancer UK. Tracy contacted me after reading about my ten-mile charity run and I was glad of the chance to tell my story to many more people, raise the profile of neuroendocrine cancer and give the charity a boost. I’d be happy to work with Tracy again."
