Learning to live again: Tiff’s story

In the latest episode, Claire travels to Leicester to talk to Tiffany Youngs…

Tiff appeared at the age of 28 to have an amazing life – recently married to Tom Youngs, the England and Leicester Tigers rugby player, with a new baby girl Maisie and a lovely family home in Leicester.

However this was all about to be turned on its head when she found out in 2014 that she was suffering from Hodgkin Lymphoma.

This is the remarkable story of how Tiff dealt with three years of ill health and numerous different treatments, including a stem cell transplant, only to be told the devastating news in April 2017 that her cancer was terminal.

“I said you know Mummy hasn’t been very well, unfortunately Mummy has got to go to heaven….and she was like Oh OK so I never see Mummy again.”

However a few months ago Tiff found out that she was in remission – the scan was completely clear of cancer.

How does it feel as a mother to face a terminal diagnosis? Tiff talks to Claire about her health and emotions, and the extraordinary turnaround which sees her now in remission from the disease.
