This Morning viewers sob as mum with three months to live gets £2k prize

This Morning viewers were in floods of tears as mum Heather opened up about her terminal diagnosis, after being told she had three months to live.

Heather appeared on the show for the ‘Dosh On Your Doorstep’ segment, where Alison Hammond was on hand to help her win a cash prize.

Explaining what she would do with the money, she explained she would be putting it towards a huge party before her death.

‘I got diagnosed with breast cancer in 2019,” Heather told presenter Alison Hammond,’ she began.

‘I then got the all-clear just before my 40th birthday, thought things were getting back to normal but then I got told I had brain mets.

‘So now I’m getting myself organised, I’ve been told I have three months to live.

‘Now I am going to have a Wake Me Up Before I Go Go party. It’s a party before my passing. The money will go towards that.’

Brain metastases occur when cancer cells spread to the brain, and may form a tumour on the brain.

Asked how she keeps positive despite her looming death, Heather insisted: ‘There’s no point moping because it is what it is.

‘If I mope, it’s not going to help my family, it’s not going to help my husband or my children.

Heather was able to take home an incredible £1,000 after she answered a string of questions correctly – and was later given passes to watch an England rugby training session and meet the players as part of her prize.

‘It’s amazing, absolutely amazing,’ she said of news, struggling to regain her composure.
