In 2004 Rebekah Gibbs became a household name when she landed the part
of Nina Farr, a feisty paramedic in the popular BBC show, Casualty.
In 2006 Rebekah left Casualty to spend more time with her partner and the pair were delighted when their daughter Gigi was born in February 2008.
But when Gigi was just ten weeks old, a lump in Rebekah's breast was diagnosed as cancer. She quickly underwent a lumpectomy followed by chemotherapy and is about to start a course of radiotherapy. Rebekah remains upbeat and positive about her experiences.
