According to an extensive Instagram post, Leanne Hainsby, a rider at Peloton, announced that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer at age 35.
In her opening speech, the British spin instructor gave a brief history of her experience and a collection of photos taken in her hospital room.
Hainsby Speaks Out About Her Breast Cancer Battle For The First Time
In her first public appearance since discovering a lump on her breast, Peloton instructor Leanne Hainsby is revealing for the first time the story of how she got a second opinion that saved her life. It was recently revealed on Instagram that 35-year-old cycling instructor Leanne Hainsby was diagnosed with breast cancer last August due to her work at the fitness company.
As she wrote in her letter, after discovering a lump in her breast, she sought medical attention that same day and was told: “there was nothing to worry about.”.
Her only chance of surviving was to trust her gut and request a second opinion from a physician who could give her a second opinion. Then, using the phrase “Check and check again” to persuade her followers to do the same, she encouraged them to do the same.
During the past six months, Hainsby, based in London, has undergone surgery and a 12-week chemotherapy treatment after receiving a breast cancer diagnosis six months ago.
The Next Step Will Be For Her To Undergo Two Weeks Of Radiation Treatment
She explained that she would be receiving radiation treatments for two weeks in the weeks ahead as part of the treatment. “Treatment will continue for a long time for me, hospital visits are the norm, and I focus on one step at a time,” Hainsby wrote on her website, without specifying what stage of cancer she is currently battling.
It was also reported that Mrs. Hainsby had undergone in-vitro fertilization, or IVF, before chemotherapy, which may be an option for some women if they are concerned that the chemotherapy medicine may lead to infertility as a result of the treatment.
“I was lucky enough to be given time ahead of chemotherapy to do a round of IVF,” Hainsby wrote, adding of her and her partner, Ben Alldis, a fellow Peloton instructor, “We weren’t mentally prepared, but we got it done, and we’re so grateful.”
According to the spokesperson for Peloton, it has been reported today that “Our love and support is with Leanne and Ben at this time but, as a policy and to respect their privacy, we don’t comment on the personal lives of our team members.”
It Is Possible For Women Of All Ages To Be Affected By Breast Cancer
As soon as Hainsby confirmed that she had breast cancer at age 35, it underlined the warning that breast cancer can affect women of all ages, even though most breast cancers are found in women over 50, according to the CDC.
It’s estimated that over 260,000 new breast cancer cases were reported in the United States during 2019, the latest data available from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This makes breast cancer the second-most common cancer among women.
One of the primary purposes of this post was to make people understand that it is essential that they know that cancer can strike anyone at any time, regardless of age and gender. As a result, the best way is to ensure that your body gives you all the symptoms and signs it wants.
