Leanne Hainsbyone of the many popular instructors on Peloton, talks about her scary diagnosis… telling people she’s been undergoing treatments for breast cancer.
The cycling coach took to Instagram on Friday morning… and said she was diagnosed in August after weeks of being terrified and undergoing “multiple scans and appointments with both consultants and cancer nurses.”
She says it all started after she found a lump in her breast — tragically just 2 days before her best friend, Dani Hampton‘s funeral. Hampson was the fiancée of ‘X Factor’ star tom man Who passed away at just 34 years old, as we reported.
Leanne says losing a close friend was hard enough, but having to navigate the world with her diagnosis on top made it that much worse. Throughout her treatment, she says her classes have been a huge focus for her, and she is extremely grateful to those who have worked with her.
Aside from her treatments, Leanne says she’s already had surgery, with another one coming up to remove her port where she received her chemo — followed by another 2 weeks of radiotherapy… and adds: “I’m in wonderful hands, and I’ve got this.”
Her fellow Peloton Instructors are coming out in droves to support her… like her fiancé, Ben Alldiswho says, “Your shining light shines brighter than ever✨.”
