A woman has been dubbed Britain's most glamorous cancer patient after showing up to every chemo session dressed as if she were on a night out.

Lisa Fry, 40, from Cheltenham, Glos, was diagnosed with incurable cancer last year, just a week before giving birth to her youngest, son Jagger.

And although the cancer has spread and she has been told it's incurable, the former Army Cadet Force sergeant decided she was going to be the same dressy person she has always been.

Lisa - who has four children; Charlie,15, Marley, 13, Woody, 11 and Jagger, 20 months, said: "I have always been a fashion follower, I love style but I think this time around I've ramped it up a bit more.

"I dress like that every single day even if it's for doing a school run or popping to the shops. I don't want my kids to see me being any differed to how I was before the cancer. I'm still their mum.

"I dress like that because it makes me feel good- I also get so many compliments.

"People ask me how do you dress like that when you have four kids and cancer-I get a lot of attention and it's really nice, it boosts me.

"All the chemo nurses are used to me now.

"I have had a lot of positive feedback- I think I've got two choices really, I either sit at home, be depressed and think about the worst or I can think the most of the time that I've got and be happy and get on with life.

"I'd rather grab these opportunities that come in life."

Lisa was initially diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer in 2011, when she found a lump while breast feeding.

After two years of treatment involving chemotherapy, radiotherapy and surgery she was given the all clear.

Lisa went on with her life, became a personal trainer, a Sergeant in the Army Cadet Force, got married and even fell pregnant again - despite being told that the cancer treatment would have left her infertile.

Sadly a week before giving birth to her youngest in March 2018, she found out cancer had returned, spread to her sternum bone and she was classed as terminal.

She added: "It was a massive shock because previously me and my husband tried for a baby but I was told chemotherapy had destroyed my eggs and it wasn't going to happen.

"It was heart-breaking, I was thinking 'I can't have cancer, I'm going to have a baby in a week.

"I had a hard labour but thankfully he was fine.

"I was even able to breastfeed even though I was told it wouldn't be possible because of the surgery.

Lisa said that considering her condition, she feels amazing

"The day I found out was horrendous, my world just broke into a million pieces- that day still haunts me today.

"I was thinking 'why me' but suddenly something clicked inside me - I decided I'm going to crack on with my life. "

Lisa admits that considering her condition, she feels amazing and puts it down to her plant-based diet and exercise - also her positive attitude and her love for fashion.

She added: "Considering what I've got I feel healthier than I've ever been . I've got four kids I don't have time to be ill.

"I'm not this weak fragile thing riddled by cancer, I am really confident, sassy and feel super sexy in my own skin, I'm physically strong and mentally and really positive about the future I believe I will be here a lot longer than given.

"I'm also looking for a real challenge to get stuck into in 2020 and I'm really excited about what opportunities come my way."
