"Today is World Cancer Day and this time last year I didn't know I had it"

 

This statement from Alannah Sheehan in her most recent Instagram post would stop anyone in their tracks.

 

The wife and mother of three has a rare form of cancer called Glioblastoma Multiform (GBM) which is a grade 4 brain tumour. There is a 50% chance of living longer than 2 years for people who get diagnosed with GBM. It's incurable and one of the most aggressive types of cancer.

 


 

Alannah is using her Instagram as a photo diary for her children when they grow up so they can always look back at memories she has shared.

 

There are some light-hearted posts that Alannah shares on her page and her positivity is infectious.

 


 

Alannah was a former chef so she shares very healthy recipes of dishes and juicing on her  IG stories.
