A mum who found out she had cancer while she was pregnant with her fourth child has been treated to a week’s holiday in Hunstanton.

Dereham-based support group Caring Friends for Cancer arranged the break for Sarah Everett - who lives in the town - and her family.

Six months into her pregnancy Mrs Everett, who is in her early 40s, found she had a lump which turned out to be grade three invasive ductal carcinoma - a type of breast cancer.

Margaret Barrett, Carning Friends administrator, said: “Then followed a gruelling mastectomy and lymph node removal.

“And in the middle of all this baby Quinn arrived safely after 37 weeks by caesarian. Then began the chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

“Now at the end of her treatment and on the road to recovery on hormone therapy her cancer nurse suggested a break away would help her.”

Mrs Everett said she wanted to thank Caring Friends for organising the “wonderful week”. She said: “Myself and my family really appreciate the generous gift from the charity.”
