Lucy Lodge has a passion for karaoke.
She’s been obsessed with it ever since she got her first machine when she was six years old.
But in 2010, Lucy started to struggle to hit certain notes like Tina Turner famously hit. This was something she normally was able to do.
Lucy, who is now 31-years-old, however, ignored this for nearly a year. She put it down to overusing the machine.
But, in 2011, she visited her local GP, where she was diagnosed with laryngitis and was told to rest her voice for a few weeks.
Despite resting her voice, she returned to her GP and told them she was still suffering from the same symptoms for an extended period of time.
She confessed to the doctor that she was worried it was cancer, but the doctors brushed off any suggestion of cancer being the cause.
Lucy was told there was ‘not a chance’ that she could possibly have cancer. But after repeatedly asking them, they agreed to run a few tests to put Lucy’s mind at ease.
It was later that month that Lucy’s fears were confirmed.
