A grateful mum-of-two who has overcome breast cancer believes losing weight helped save her life.

Gemma Waring, from Shiptonthorpe, has thanked weight loss group Slimming World in Pocklington after shedding four-and-a-half stones, which she says helped her find a lump in her right breast.

The 28-year-old said: “I am so grateful I joined Slimming World. I am sure losing this weight helped me find my lump. I feel stronger and look at life so much differently.”

Mrs Waring joined the group in January 2012 and lost four-and-a-half stones in just a year.
