Janey Godley shares one year comparison photos and says she's 'getting stronger'


Janey Godley has shared some comparison photos on her Twitter to show the difference of a year.

The Scots comedian took to her social media to share two selfies of herself, one being before she was diagnosed with cancer.

In the first picture, Janey can be seen smiling with her long curly hair, wearing a pair of sunglasses.

And in the second picture, the 61-year-old can be seen lying in bed with her head shaved – a decision she decided to make after being told she had cervical cancer.

Back in December, Janey found out that she had cancer after experiencing some symptoms of bloating and frequent urination.

And in January, she underwent a hysterectomy but even after the surgery she was told she would need to undergo further treatment as her cancer had progressed to stage 3b.

This means there are cancer growths 2cm or smaller in size on the lining of the abdomen and there may also be cancer in the lymph nodes.

Janey underwent six rounds chemotherapy and is waiting to hear back the results.

After sharing the photos, Janey told her followers that she is getting stronger again and many flocked to the comments to share their support.

One wrote: “It grows back! You’ve come so far, Janey. Now for the fun bit, experimenting with new dos.”

Another added: “Sending all the love J.”

While one said: “I see a beautiful and brave lady who has been through the mill and has done it with grace and humour. And she is strong. So strong.”

And one commented: “Then as now, you are beautiful and your willingness to share your journey will help so many people when they might otherwise feel alone and afraid.”

Janey has been sharing her journey online pretty much since she was diagnosed, and Janey even teamed up with the Beatson cancer charity to help raise £42,000.

The comedian had planned to attend charity stand up shows back in March at the Kings Theatre but was unable to as a result of her declining health.

Her daughter Ashley stepped in her mother’s place and the tickets alone raised £39,037.58 with a collection raising an extra £2693.95 and Merchandise share raising £1211.85.

Janey told her followers: “You all raised £42 GRAND for @Beatson_Charity I want to thank everyone who performed, attended, bought my Beatson merch from my site & filled @Beatson_Charity buckets at The Kings Theatre shows back in March -We raised £42,943.38. Thanks @GlasgowComedy My agent @ChrisDavisMg.”
