Leanne Hainsby is receiving breast cancer therapy. Let’s see, what happened to Leanne Hainsby in detail.

What happened to Leanne Hainsby?

Leanne Hainsby, a Peloton instructor, revealed that since the summer of last year, she has been subtly and secretly receiving breast cancer treatment.

The at-home spin class app’s most popular trainer shared the news today via her social media account.

The 35-year-old shared some significant treatment milestones and an update on her current situation alongside a photo of herself in a hospital room.

Leanne’s Social media post:

The former dancer described, Two days before my best friend’s [dancer Danielle Hampson] funeral, I found a lump in my breast. That is a sentence I NEVER imagined writing. After multiple scans and appointments with both consultants and cancer nurses, and being completely terrified for a few weeks, in August 2022, I was diagnosed with breast cancer.’

‘Where possible, I have continued to show up as ‘normal’, but my reality most of the time, has looked very different. In terms of my treatment and navigating my way through up until this point, it has been something I’ve kept very private.’

‘As a Peloton instructor, a huge part of my role is all about the members, and despite my diagnosis, that has always mattered to me hugely. My classes have given me focus, and some sparkle in an otherwise incredibly tough time, so Thank You to the members who had no idea the amount of joy they were bringing to me every day.’, she added.

To be in the early stages of grief after losing Danielle, and then faced with something like this, has been unimaginably tough, and that still feels like an understatement.

Her cancer treatment:

She revealed about her breast cancer treatment. She says, ‘The treatment for breast cancer varies hugely, no two people are the same even if they have had the same diagnosis, so here is where I am at:

I was lucky enough to be given time ahead of chemotherapy to doing a round of IVF. We weren’t mentally prepared, but we got it done and we’re so grateful.

I have completed 12 weeks of chemo. I would teach my Wednesday morning LIVE classes, and then meet my Mum and go to the treatment suite for my weekly dose (alongside other drugs as part of my treatment plan). Chemo is no joke. Cold caps are no joke.

I have had my surgery. For those that have experienced cording post-breast cancer surgery, ouch, right?!

I have had some very good news in the last week, and it is so welcomed after a relentlessly cruel 2022.’

Leanne shared her treatment method:

Peloton instructor, Leanne shared about her treatment process, saying, “I’ll have my portacath surgically removed next, followed by two weeks of radiotherapy, and I’ll be ready.”, she described.

“I’ll be receiving treatment for a very long time; trips to the hospital are common, and I concentrate on one step at a time. Being treated personally does make me feel incredibly fortunate.

Without the fantastic nurses and physicians, I wouldn’t be here. They have my highest respect.

I have learned a lot. This is what happens to you when you’re surrounded by oncologists and consultants and hear words being used that you don’t understand and find frightening.

I have a lot to say, but for the time being, this is where I am and how I feel comfortable sharing.”

Cancer awareness:

Leanne told that she shares her condition because of three main reasons. That includes,

1. To raise awareness. I’m young for breast cancer at 35. I went to a doctor the same morning I found the lump, and I was told everything was ok. I trusted my gut and got a second opinion. That saved my life. Check, and check again.

2. When the time is right, it is important to me to be of service to those going through treatment and those supporting someone going through treatment. However big or small, it is important to me to give back.

3. I’ve been dealt some cards that have changed my life forever, and somehow I’ve still kept moving forward. If I can motivate or inspire just one person to either keep going in their journey, or to get themselves checked, then sharing something so very personal will be worth it.

I’m nearly 6 months down the line. I’m in fantastic hands, and I’ve got this. Nobody wants to be sat in a room and told they have cancer, and yet I’ve always felt one of the lucky ones.

I am one of the lucky ones. Lucky to be diagnosed early, lucky to be moving fast through treatment, lucky to know I WILL BE OK. Your life outlook becomes so very different in times like this. I think anyone who has had to ask ‘am I going to die?’ to a medical professional would probably say the same. But then you fight. You gain a strength you never knew you had, and you keep pushing forward. Strong, as healthy as possible, and empowered., she wrote.
