After burping too much, my mother discovered she had terminal cancer while watching Corrie.

A WOMAN’S MOTHER DIED OF CANCER, which she diagnosed herself after watching Coronation Street.

Bea Walton of Crewe, Cheshire, had noticed that the character Hayley Cropper had mentioned the same symptom.

In final scenes aired in January 2014, the TV soap star was diagnosed with terminal pancreatic cancer and committed suicide.

Bea, a 60-year-old grandmother at the time, first noticed something was wrong in early 2015, according to her daughter, Nicola Smith.

“She [Bea] started burping a lot, which obviously is unusual for a lot of people,” Nicola, 46, told Cheshire Live.

“I think it was Hayley on Coronation Street who had the same symptoms as my mother, so she mentioned it to the doctor…”

Bea developed jaundice while undergoing scans, which is a condition in which the skin and whites of the eyes turn yellow as a result of a liver problem.

This, along with the burping, turned out to be a sign that Bea was suffering from pancreatic cancer.

Jaundice, feeling or being sick, changes in stools, stomach and back pain, and indigestion symptoms such as burping and bloating are some of the disease’s symptoms.

It also causes weight loss, fatigue, and a high temperature, which are all common cancer symptoms.

Bea had a Whipple operation at North Staffordshire Hospital after being diagnosed with cancer in March 2015.

The Whipple procedure involves removing the pancreas head as well as various parts of the bowel.

It has the potential to save the lives of people with pancreatic cancer.

Bea received chemotherapy at South Cheshire Hospital after that.

However, it was ineffective, and the cancer spread to other parts of her body.

At the same time, she struggled to eat due to chemo-induced mouth sores.

Bea died in November 2016, at the age of 62, after “fighting until the end,” according to Nicola.

“As the youngest grandchild at the time, my mother was determined to see my first birthday in October,” Nicola explained.

“So she saw that, and I think once she saw her first birthday, she sort of gave up, but she knew she’d seen it and could relax.”

“Perhaps if my mother had known that burping and jaundice were warning signs earlier, they would have caught it and she would still be alive today.”

“I mean, there are some people who are fortunate.

But it’s really just to raise awareness about the signs and symptoms.”

As part of Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month, Nicola shared her mother’s story.
