In 2016, Anita was diagnosed with breast cancer.
At just 24 years old, Anita was planning her dream wedding with her fiancé, Scott – but her cancer was aggressive and she had to start treatment including the removal of her right breast, chemotherapy, Herceptin and fertility treatment. Anita and Scott made the decision to cancel their wedding to focus on her treatment.
Anita and Scott were able to set a date in 2018 and got married in front of family and close friends in June. Anita said: “On the day, I forgot all about cancer – for once it wasn’t the first thing on my mind.”
