Coleen Nolan is proud of her sister BERNIE's positive attitude during her cancer treatment - because she's been suffering "a lot of nasty side effects" from chemotherapy.
The 49-year-old I'm in the Mood for Dancing singer was diagnosed with breast cancer in April (10) and has been undergoing treatment sessions in a bid to beat the disease.
Her sister Coleen reveals Bernie will undergo surgery next month (Oct10) and she's full of praise for her sibling's fighting spirit.
Coleen says, "This girl never ceases to amaze... It really proves that your mental attitude to things is so important, the mind is so strong. She's had a hard time, a lot of nasty side effects with the chemo, but she comes through them and goes, 'I don't care about the side effects because it means they're working and I'm getting better.'
"She's got one more chemo session and then she has her operation in October and she said 'I'm done now'. They've caught it, it's gone. I'm so proud of her."
