Emily Roberts

Age: 30
Family: Mum to 3 girls Isla (11), Edie (6) and Anni (5)
Occupation: NHS Admin 

Emily was diagnosed at the end of July 2020 with Breast cancer and then, 3 weeks, later spots on her liver; this being a secondary diagnosis. By June 2021, the cancer had spread to her spine and by October 2021 it had spread to Emily’s lymph nodes. Emily’s Mum, Nina, remembers Emily for her devoted love to her girls and her love for animals, music and dancing. Emily was the most kind, selfless, vibrant, generous, life loving person you could meet. Her smile lit up any room.

Despite having various treatments including, chemotherapy, alternative treatments, covid and 2 bouts of sepsis, Emily put her girls before everything and her cause to raise vital funds for secondary breast cancer support groups and charities, organising events and gifts, even from her hospital bed.

Sadly, on the 7th February 2022, Emily was found unconscious by her Mum and she passed away later that day with all her family at her bedside. Unbeknown to Emily and her family, the cancer had spread to her brain causing a huge haemorrhage.

 Emily felt passionate about helping the secondary breast cancer community and was thrilled to be a part of the Fighting to be Heard Campaign. Unfortunately, she never got to see how big the campaign was to become. Her Mum Nina calls Emily “Her Hero”, and is so proud that Emily is still included in Fighting to be Heard, alongside us all, despite her passing. This is Emily’s legacy for her daughters.
