Sam McClymont has opened up about the devastating moment she was diagnosed with aggressive breast cancer at the age of 38.

The Getaway host revealed that she was initially given the all-clear last year after finding a lump in her right breast.

“I decided to go to the specialist and see what my options were,” she said women’s Day.

Sam said she had further tests and heard nothing from her doctor, so she returned for her next appointment three weeks later.

But she was shocked when the specialist told her she had triple negative breast cancer, the most aggressive form.
