Sky News' Jacquie Beltrao hopes birthday isn't her last amid cancer battle as she turns 56

Since her diagnosis, Jacquie has completely removed sugar from her diet but felt tempted to enjoy a slice of cake her daughter, Amelia, had made for her.

She continued: “I’ve been very disciplined with my diet in the last 12 months. I’ve given up sugar, I’ve lost nearly a stone in weight!

“So I’m just wondering today if I have a piece of cake that my daughter’s made, I’m thinking yes, but then will I feel guilty when I’ve eaten it? 

“Maybe, I don’t know, it’s so difficult for us with stage four cancer. What to do for the best.”
