BBC Presenter announces she has only days to Live in Moving Tweet



Rachael Bland

BBC presenter Rachael Bland, 40 who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2016 has announced, in a moving post that she has only days to live, while thanking everyone for their love and support.

In May 2018, Bland was told her cancer was incurable. Two months later, she was told her cancer had spread further.

In an August article, Bland said she was in a race against time to finish a memoir – For Freddie – she was writing for her 2-year old son Freddie.

She wanted her son to know about her when he grows up. She had hoped that it’d be published before she passes.

However, in a tweet on Monday, Bland said she has only “days” to live.

The co-host of the You, Me and the Big C podcast wrote: “In the words of the legendary Frank S – I’m afraid the time has come my friends. And suddenly. I’m told I’ve only got days. It’s very surreal. Thank you so much for all the support I’ve received.”

“Au revoir my friends,” she added.

She also posted the same message on Instagram, along with a photo of her and her husband Steve Bland.

    Oh death. I guess every life must come to an end whether timely or untimely- one way or the other.

    It breaks my heart to read this, especially with her having a young son. I lost my mother at 5, so I know what it’s like growing up with one.

    Tears in my eyes as i read this; we had to deal with the same news about my mum. it was the most painful one week of my life watching her slowly die. the only solace we had was that she had time to make peace with her maker; not a,lot of people get that that opportunity. Rest on mum, i miss you everyday.

    It hurts to read this….I cannot imagine what she is going through and having to watch what she will leave behind. God do a miracle.

    This is the most heartbreaking post I’ve seen, knowing you have days left to live is sad especially one with a baby. Hope she makes peace with her maker, may God give her family the grace to move on after she has gone. So sad though

    All she needs is faith as little as a mustard seed.
