On Bette’s recovery from breast cancer, Sugg’s sister-in-law Alanah was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, and after her death at the age of 60, Sugg’s turned his grief into a “war”.
“It’s very hard to diagnose so more often than not people with pancreatic cancer are way down the line and that’s the tragedy of it,” Sugg’s explained to the Telegraph back in 2015.
“You think, ‘Oh my God, that’s such a virulent form’ because they die so quickly, when in fact it’s not really, it’s just they’ve been diagnosed so late. It can be misdiagnosed as all sorts of things.”
“We’d seen what Anne had been through and our immediate reaction was that, however bad it is, Alanah would get through it because we’re such strong people.
