"It came out of the blue. Like a lot of people"

In January, Ruth Barry was diagnosed with hormonal receptive breast cancer after a fateful tip in her car urged her to get a lump checked out by her doctor.

Speaking on Today FM's Dermot and Dave, the Dublin lady tells us a very common symptom she had overlooked, "I was feeling very tired and I just kinda put it down to being a mammy and being a partner and work".

Ruth then opens up about what the feeling was like on receiving the news nobody wants to hear and why she had to stay strong:

The doctors and nurses, they're like angels. They work so hard and they're so lovely

This is why we Dare To Care and want YOU to join us this April 30th and BE A DANCER FOR CANCER. Let's help those "angels" and the Irish Cancer Society to help others, and maybe you or I some day.

It doesn't matter where you are or what you wanna do, simply get involved in an event near you. Or you can set up your own dancing fundraiser by clicking here.

DONATE €4 TO #DARETOCARE BY TEXTING THE WORD ‘DARE’ TO 50300

Text costs €4. Irish Cancer Society will receive a minimum of €3.60. Service Provider: LIKECHARITY
