The family of a Leeds woman who tragically died from breast cancer aged just 31 have been overwhelmed by an incredible Christmas donation.
Sinead Richards found a lump on her breast in late 2019 but put off visiting the doctors for two months due to apprehension, her husband Liam McDonagh, 32, told the YEP.
When she visited the doctors in early 2020, nothing was initially discovered as Sinead – from Stanningley – was believed to be ‘too young’ to suffer from breast cancer.
However, Liam urged Sinead to persist and return to the surgery – where it was found that she had advanced Stage Four breast cancer.
The devastating diagnosis left Sinead with an 18-month battle against the condition as it spread throughout her body.
Tragically, Sinead died on September 10, less than a month after her wedding to Liam in August.
She also leaves behind her two daughters – Paige aged seven and Georgie aged ten – described as ‘mummy’s girls’ by Liam.
