A 31-year-old woman has died of breast cancer just two weeks after her wedding day.
The mum-of-two who was told declared “too young” to have breast cancer when she visited the hospital.
Sinead Richards had visited the hospital in early 2020 after she found a lump on her breast in late 2019.
She was literally diagnosed of nothing because, at 29, she was just too young to develop breast cancer.
Sinead was later diagnosed with stage four breast cancer which had spread all over her body as at discovery.
She died on 10 September at the age of 31, two weeks after tying the knot with Liam McDonagh, her partner of 12 years, on 19 August.
Liam said, “When we were in the hospital, people would give us a second glance as they couldn’t believe how young we were. She was only 31, we couldn’t believe it.”
Sinead who was pastoral mentor, leaves behind the couple’s two daughters, Paige, seven, and Georgie, 10.
Liam also urged other women to get tested regardless of their age.
“If her story helps even one more person to get checked, this will have all been worthwhile. She was the most amazing person.
“I just want to show that this can happen to anyone and urge people to get checked if they ever notice anything,” he added.
