Mum who documented harrowing cancer battle is given the all clear

Company director Ruth Naylor, 32, was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma last August and doctors were unsure if she would survive.

But Ruth vowed “dying is not an option” and documented her gruelling treatment online.

And last night she revealed she had beaten it in a video on Instagram. Fighting back tears, she told her 15,000 followers: “So today something awesome happened.

“I took a call from my oncology team and they gave me that thing that I really needed.

“I have the all-clear — no evidence of disease. I’m done.

“No more cancer, no more treatment, no more uncertainty, just a life back.

“To say it feels incredible is an understatement. Thank you.”

The video, posted on Wednesday evening, had been viewed more than 20,000 times by last night.

Alongside it Ruth wrote: “I won and for anyone who tries to contact me tonight, I’m busy… on a dance floor.”

Yesterday she posted a picture of herself laughing, and wrote: “The morning after. Everything hurts apart from my heart — my feet, my head, my face from smiling but my heart is still dancing.”

Soon after her treatment started, Ruth, of Hale, Greater Manchester, said: “On paper, I have it all. A beautiful home we built ourselves, two gorgeous children and a brilliant career.

“When I’m in my hospital gown, I’m no different to anyone else. Just another woman desperate not to die. Dying is not an option.”

One well-wisher called mum-of-two Ruth an inspirational lady and said: “Now go out there and enjoy every second, give your kiddies the biggest squeeze.”
