Brave mum Lynsey Bennett has shared a positive health update as she battles cancer for the third time. The 32-year-old mum-of-two from Longford was diagnosed with invasive cervical cancer, which she required surgery for, back in 2017, and we have all been rallying behind her as she continues her courageous battle.

In February, Lynsey said goodbye to her two girls, Zoe, 12, and 7-year-old Hayley, as she travelled Mexico for immunotherapy – which she dubbed “a chance at life”.

Since returning home after receiving the treatment, Lynsey was awaiting test results for an update on her diagnosis, and she has shared some wonderful news.

Lynsey confirmed her cancer has remained stable, and she is feeling great:

“I have so many messages asking me how I got on. I was seen late and my phone died, but we have good news.” She told her 46.5K instagram followers.

“My cancer is still stable, which is just absolutely amazing to think that it’s still under control. I’m so so grateful. Thank you so much everyone for all your love.”

It has been a tough few weeks for Lynsey, who had to undergo surgery to remove a broken piece of her PICC line left in her arm just last month. Lynsey trusted her gut and was once again proven right when she followed her instinct that something wasn’t right after a PICC line insertion.

The mum of two says she is amazed at how much better she has been feeling recently, sharing a clip of a previous interview she did during a time in which she was struggling to accept her diagnosis.

“I’ve made peace with the fact that I’m going to have to die. I haven’t made complete peace with the fact I’m going to have to die soon. I can’t make peace with the fact that I’ll have to leave the girls. It’s something I just can’t do. I get carried away some days with it where I’m like ‘Who is going to make sure they’re told it doesn’t matter how well you do in your leaving cert? Who’s going to tell them it doesn’t matter if you don’t want to go to college’?”

“That’s something I can’t make peace with. That’s my thing with death, it’s leaving the girls. Even though I’m trying to leave them all the advice I can and write as many birthday cards as I can, nearly to age 100 so they always have one to open from me. That’s what kills me. I’m sure all mammies want to support everyone until the end, but knowing that you more than likely don’t have the chance to get to an older age, it’s really really tough. It’s something that doesn’t sit with me at all.”

Admitting she is in a much better place now, Lynsey wrote:

‘Looking back on where this cancer journey began again. It’s strange looking back at this podcast, it was before the court case, before I was told I could do pembro, and while I was being told double dose of the chemo was the only option and so tensions were high and I was exhausted because I was saying no no no.

‘It was before I even knew about the centre in Mexico. This snippet is really the only kind of emotional bit with tears, the rest was lots of smiling,

‘It’s amazing how much healthier I feel months on from that podcast.’

Sending Lynsey love and support as she continues her journey.
