London, Feb 10 (ANI): A woman who was given just weeks to live after her cancer diagnosis has stunned doctors by surviving for another 13 years -and is still going strong.

Mother-of-two Sue Wigg, 56, from West Sussex, was diagnosed with terminal cancer in 1998 after cancerous tumours were found in her liver and brain, reports the Daily Mail.

Doctors told her and her devastated family that she was likely to live for just another six weeks.

However, miraculously Wigg’s immune system fought back and, following drug treatment and radiotherapy, she has gradually beaten the disease day-by-day.

And against all odds she is now living a full and healthy life, although she has not yet been given the all-clear.

Doctors have described her case as rare and unusual but not unique.

Wigg is now working part-time in a playgroup for children with additional needs. (ANI)
