Julia Bradbury, 51, confirmed last month she had been diagnosed with breast cancer. Since opening up about it on social media, the former Countryfile star has undergone a mastectomy.
Today, she took to Twitter, after coming out of surgery yesterday, to share an emotional update with her 141,000 followers.
She posted an illustration created by The Yorkshire Post cartoonist Graeme Bandeira, which portrayed her as Superwoman.
The image shows a cartoon version of Julia flying over the Yorkshire hills and the Ribblehead viaduct.
The TV star wrote: “This made me laugh & cry.
“@GraemeBandeira @yorkshirepost for your [love] & support.
“I don’t feel like Superwoman but I’m ‘happy’ that some positives can emerge from my breast cancer.
“Pls check yourselves & learn as much as you can about your own body.”
She signed off the message with the hashtag “#BreastCancerAwarenessMonth”.
Julia’s fans flooded her replies with messages of support during her gruelling fight.
Muminthecountry wrote: “Genuinely sad when I read the news of your breast cancer diagnosis.
“I finally checked myself & all good. So thank you for that.
“Your beautiful & inspirational so hope to see you back on the box soon.
“I’m sure there is more you can teach us about the heavenly Greek islands.” [sic]
Betafrank added: “I watched your TV series years ago when you was walking the lake District.
“You gave me so much pleasure. Beautiful lady and beautiful views.
“Wishing you all the best wishes in your fight for recovery.
“Stay strong lovely lady,” they concluded.
Marcrads penned: “Just remember to stay strong.
“I had oral Cancer in 2015, it returned in 2019 but behind my right eye, I was told inoperable, and untreatable.
“Prognosis was probably 3 to 6 months. Still here and still soldiering on. So keep on Living.”
