Anne Nolan, 69, was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer earlier this year. Her sister Linda, 61, found out she has incurable liver cancer just few days later. Pair have vowed to beat the disease that killed their sister Bernie, 52, in 2013.
Nolan sisters Linda and Anne battle cancer together
Nolan sisters Linda and Anne have revealed they are battling cancer together after being diagnosed with the disease just days apart.
The siblings, who formed part of Irish pop group The Nolans, began chemotherapy at Blackpool’s Victoria Hospital last month.
They received news of their shock diagnoses within days of each other, shortly after the sisters returned from filming a series of The Nolans Go Cruising in March.

A private message from Anne Nolan, Don’t really know what to say except I am doing what I have to do to get rid of the cancer. It’s very debilitating but It’s my only option and I thank you all for your thoughts and prayers xxxxx @danwootton— Anne Nolan's Manager (@AnneNolan2) August 2, 2020
Loose Women presenter Coleen also took to Twitter after the news broke last night.
‘They’ve beaten it before – they can beat it again,’ she said. ‘Please keep them in your thoughts and well wishes.’

‘Forget the Chemical Brothers, we’ve become the Chemo Sisters,’ she added.
Mother-of-two Anne said: ‘I don’t want to die. I love my life so much. I love my daughters, my grandchildren, my friends, all my family.
‘I want to live for as long as I possibly can.’
Anne, 69, found out she has stage three breast cancer in April, 20 years after she was first diagnosed with the disease in 2000.
Her sister Linda, 61, discovered she has incurable liver cancer days later.
The pop star has also battled cancer before. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006, cellulitis and lymphoedema in her arm in 2007 and secondary cancer on her pelvis in 2017.
Linda said she thought her scans ‘would be just fine as they normally are‘, before her oncologist’s office phoned her to say she needed an MRI scan as they had found something on her liver.
The call came just half an hour after her sister Maureen contacted her to deliver the news that Anne’s breast cancer had returned.
