Julia Gailes (L) with sister Wendy Moffett (R). Two sisters have told of their heartbreak at both being diagnosed with the same rare aggressive cancer just weeks apart - with only one set to beat the killer disease. See SWNS story SWSYsisters. Julia Gailes, 48, found a lump in her left breast and while she was waiting for test results, sister Wendy Moffett, 57, discovered an identical lump in her right boob. Not wanting to worry her little sister, Wendy secretly had tests, and was diagnosed with the exact same cancer as Julia, five weeks after her sibling. The pair both had single mastectomies two months apart, and Julia had chemotherapy and radiotherapy. They supported each other throughout 18 months of treatment, calling regularly and sending text messages to boost each other's spirits. But while Julia was told she was in remission, Wendy was told she couldn't have chemotherapy due to a weak heart. Just 10 months after her sister was given the all clear, Wendy was told her cancer was terminal, and she had one year to live. Despite their starkly different prognosis', the pair are closer than ever, and threw a joint party to celebrate life.
