My Rescue Dog Saved Me By Sniffing Out My Cancer
Lucy Giles and her rescue dog, Brody – SWNS
Lucy Giles said she owes her life to a rescue dog who sensed her breast cancer and wouldn’t keep its nose out of her right armpit. Her dog, named Brody, one day began sniffing and nuzzling at her right armpit. Lucy Giles thought her beloved Brody was initially just craving some attention, but eventually examined herself in the spot and felt a lump. When she went to get the growth checked out, doctors found that it was cancerous. Giles underwent six rounds of chemotherapy followed by a lumpectomy and radiotherapy afterward. Lucy has a brilliant support network of family and friends who take her to appointments and help by “just being there”, along with Brody of course.
