This story is so surreal but it has a happy ending. Annabel Wood, a 47-year-old actress, played a cancer patient undergoing treatment in a television advert for a charity and just four months later, she was diagnosed with stage two breast cancer in real life!
After six rounds of chemotherapy, a lumpectomy and 30 sessions of radiotherapy, she has been declared cancer-free. She admits "the support network she learnt about while filming for the charity was a big help".
No lesson in life is wasted, they always come in handy at some points in our lives.
