A WOMAN who bravely battled cancer SEVEN times has died.

Mrs Susan Kenyon, 62, of Dalton, refused to let the disease ruin her life.

She was diagnosed with breast cancer seven times between 1991 and this year, but finally died of the disease last week.

Mrs Kenyon’s bravery was recognised when she was chosen to front a major fundraising drive for breast cancer charities by the supermarket chain, Morrisons.

Her family have also paid tribute to her bravery.

Daughter Anne-Marie said: “It was the seventh time she had been diagnosed and this time it reached her lungs.

“She was an amazing woman. She told my sister Miranda and I that she never wanted to go into a hospital and insisted when necessary we look after her at home.

“Her main feature in her life was her family and she doted on her four grandchildren, whom she saw every day.

“Despite all her problems, she never once complained”.

Mrs Kenyon was brought up in Almondbury and went to the former Almondbury High School in New North Road, Huddersfield.

She worked as a hairdresser for many years and also had a spell as a cleaner.

She lost her husband Tony to cancer in 2007.

Mrs Kenyon’s brave battle was highlighted by the Examiner and by newspapers and magazines from across the world.

She leaves two daughters and four grandchildren Charley, Olivia, Molly and Megan.

A funeral service takes place tomorrow at 10am at Christ Church, Moldgreen, followed by a cremation at Huddersfield.
