The former Home and Away star breaks down for the first time as she opens up about her battle with cancer.
24-year-old actress Tessa James, married to footy star Nate Myles, opened up for the first time on national television about her battle with cancer.
Tessa was diagnosed with Hodgkin's Lymphoma in September last year, and underwent chemotherapy in February.
"You'd see actresses and they seemed to always go through hardships," Tessa told Sunday Night. "I always thought, well I don't have a story. My life is great......Yeah, I have a story now."
Her bravery is something her husband Nate took notice of. "She’s tougher than any footballer I have played alongside. There’s a euphoric feeling when you walk off a field sore but for Tess when she was doing her treatment, she didn’t know for a lot of the time if it was a win, if it was helping.”
