A Sutton woman is set for an unforgettable day when she takes to the catwalk - ten years after being diagnosed with breast cancer.

Debbi Ashley, 61, will be sharing the stage with 31 other people at the annual Breast Cancer Care Show.

Debbi who works as a medical secretary at St George's Hospital said: “In June 2009 my world was rocked by a breast cancer diagnosis.

"I then had a mastectomy followed by six rounds of chemotherapy and then five weeks of radiotherapy, the effects of which still affect me today.

"My last radiotherapy session was the day before Christmas Eve 2009 and I got the all clear in January 2010."

In August of 2011 she then had reconstruction surgery.

But there was still a long road ahead.

"Although, physically I was now looking more regular, I struggled to return to normal mentally," Debbi added.

"But with the help of my friends and family and Breast Cancer Care I have somehow managed to slowly put my life back together.

"Last year saw me skid into my 60s and I feel I have finally got my 'happy' back, I now look at my scars and see a victory and that they tell a story.

"My four beautiful children were and still are my heroes, without them I very much doubt I would be where I am today."

The models will be transformed from head-to-toe before hitting the runway, wearing a range of beautiful outfits professionally styled by fashion director and stylist Hilary Alexander OBE.

Hair will be styled by Sassoon Salon and professional make-up artists will be adding the finishing touches to make sure they all look tip-top.

"I’m so excited to take part in The Show as this year is my 10 year 'cancerversary'," Debbi added.

"I can’t wait to step onto the catwalk in front of my friends and family and show everyone that a breast cancer diagnosis won’t stop you looking and feeling great."

Breast Cancer Care is hoping to raise over £300,000 from the event. You can donate to Debbi's fundraising page here.
