Janey Godley thanks NHS ‘for saving her life’ after scan reveals she is now cancer free Twitter

Comedian Janey Godley paid tribute to the NHS after her latest scan revealed she is now cancer free.

The 61-year-old underwent a hysterectomy earlier this year after being diagnosed with ovarian cancer in November 2021.

She had admitted she “may be facing death” in March, but her latest prognosis has revealed the disease has regressed.

Godley announced the news in an emotional video on social media in which she thanked supporters for their well wishes throughout her treatment.

She added her “cup was full with gratefulness” to medics and the Beatson Cancer Centre in Glasgow.

Godley said: “I have just had a phone call from the cancer specialist and the scan has come back clear.

“There is no evidence of the disease, so after the hysterectomy and six rounds of chemo and a blood transfusion, it seems like the NHS has definitely saved my life.

“I want to thank everybody at the Beatson Cancer Care and everybody in the NHS who looked after me, and my wee pal Shirley who looked after me when I came out with a hysterectomy.

“As it stands, the scan is clear. So, I want to thank everybody who supported me, everybody that sent me love, everybody that sent me so much strength and told me that they were thinking of me.”

Godley previously revealed she had been diagnosed after suffering from bloating to her stomach.

She previously shot to fame with her viral sketches of First Minister Nicola Sturgeon during her briefings amid the Covid pandemic.
