Bald, Boobless and Beautiful
Laura Middleton-Hughes, also known on Instagram as @baldbooblessandbeautiful, is 32 years old and lives with incurable breast cancer. She was first diagnosed in February of 2014 at the age of 25 with stage 3, ER+, HER2+, breast cancer – after discovering a small lump in her left breast. She had the full works of treatment: chemotherapy, mastectomy, radiotherapy, hormonal tablets and Herceptin injections which she finally finished in June 2015.
Only a year later a pain developed in her right shoulder which she assumed was a gym injury but after several months and a few physio sessions it got worse. Unfortunately in October 2016, aged only 28 Laura was told her cancer had returned to her bones.
