Cathy Godbold, who's portrayal as Leukaemia sufferer Meg Bowman became one of H&A's most memorable storylines, has been battling her own battle with a brain tumour.
Cathy, who was diagnosed with the tumour back in May, had the tumour removed immediately in a Melbourne hospital before starting a course of radiotherapy, which she completed on Friday.
In an interview with the Sunday Herald Sun, Cathy said that she was determined to get back to good health. "It was a terrible shock to find out I was ill. Because I am young and healthy I have a much better chance of beating it. I want to get healthy and get back to work as soon as possible. I feel tired as the treatment does knock you for six."
