‘She felt her breasts and said “Yeah I found something”,’ Gemma explained.
‘We went from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows in the space of 5mins.’

Jackie urged viewers not to wait to get a mammogram, even if you are scared about the results.
‘A lot of the time you don’t want to because a lot of people just think the worst and they are too afraid to see what the result is and it’s terrifying. It really is… and those few days are like, “what if what if”,’ Jackie said.
‘And sometimes you go ”I don’t want deal with that today I’ll deal with that next week” – and by putting it off and off, it’s not the answer.
‘And it does encourage someone to go and checked then i think that would beget because you know and too more often than not good news, its done.
‘It’s so important to get those checks done.’
