A HALE business owner and mum-of-one has opened up about living with a rare blood cancer to help raise awareness during Blood Cancer Awareness Month in September.

Faye Bala, 38, has been living with Essential Thrombocythaemia (ET) a type of blood cancer that affects the bone marrow since she was 16.

But it’s only been in the last year that’s she’s started openly talking about this with her friends and to clients at the beauty salon. Faye says her posts and videos have not only had a great response but have helped her come to terms with her diagnosis.


Faye manages her blood cancer well and has regular check-ups.
