Speaking about her most recent operation, Michelle reveals: “I was in hospital and bed-bound for four days. It's been a tough, stressful, painful and emotional thirteen days.”
The positive-thinking star admits, however, that looking at the children she shares with husband Hugh Hanley, 2-year-old Faith and 8-month-old AJ, helps her deal with her decision to undergo the life-changing surgeries.
She says: “When I really look at my children, I see the reason I underwent this life-changing op and that's to be here for them and to hopefully eliminate the chance of them having to see their mum go through what my dad saw with his, and her with hers and so on.”
Michelle appeared on Good Morning Britain yesterday to support the Bin Your Bra campaign which raises money for breast cancer research. Despite still being in recovery from her operation, Michelle looked healthy and says: “I don't have time to feel sorry for myself.”
We think Michelle is an incredibly brave and admirable young mum.
