Diana Guerra was just 18 when her 29-year-old sister Luisa started complaining of extreme back pain. After numerous trips to the GP she was told there was nothing wrong with her and was advised to take Paracetemol for the pain. When she started suffering from irregular bleeding and excruciating headaches, GPs at City Way surgery in Rochester, Kent, told her she was ‘stressed’.
Debbie and Lisa contacted us about selling their story to raise awareness of a charity walk they were doing for breast cancer. The two women had been best friends since school and both were diagnosed with breast cancer within a few weeks of each other.
