Union boss: I’ve never smoked and I’ve got lung cancer
The head of the Council of Trade Unions has confirmed she has lung cancer.
In an email to union delegates, Helen Kelly says she is undergoing further tests to determine the extent and nature of the cancer.
The 50-year-old says she feels remarkably well – all things considered and that rumours of her “demise” are exaggerated.
She doesn’t wish to comment further at this stage.
Helen – all the best from your friends at The Standard. Please respect Helen’s wishes and don’t seek or expect comment.
