Cancer, Linda Nolan
Linda Nolan has revealed how she is planning her own funeral in a heartbreaking new interview amid her cancer battle.
The 64-year-old recently shared the devastating news that her cancer has spread to her brain. While she is currently awaiting results of her MRI scan after 11 rounds of radiotherapy, the singer believes she is now on a ‘one-way trip’.
Linda is now making arrangements for her own funeral – but is still trying to hold out hope. Inspired by her beloved husband Brian, who died in 2007, she is hoping her funeral plans will make it “easier” for her family.
