Peloton Instructor Leanne Hainsby Diagnosed With Breast Cancer At Age 35

Leanne Hainsby Diagnosed with Breast Cancer

Leanne Hainsby of Peloton wrote a long post on Instagram on Friday in which she said she was told she had breast cancer at age 35.

“Two days before my best friend’s funeral, I found a lump in my breast,” the British spin instructor began as she told her story alongside a collection of hospital room photos. “Really, that’s a sentence I never thought I’d write.”

After the first doctor she saw told her she was fine, she went to see another doctor. In August 2022, she was told she had breast cancer.

She wrote, “I went with my gut and got a second opinion.” “That kept me from dying.” “Check, and check again.”

Before she started chemo, she and her fiance, a fellow Peloton instructor named Benjamin Alldis, did a round of IVF.

“Mentally, we weren’t ready, but we did it, and we’re so thankful,” she wrote.

She was able to keep working while she was being treated for breast cancer.

“As a Peloton instructor, a big part of my job is taking care of the members, and even though I have cancer, that has always been very important to me.” My classes have given me a focus and some sparkle during a very hard time, so thank you to the members who didn’t know how happy they were making me every day.

Now that her 12 weeks of chemotherapy are over, she went into detail about her plans.

“I would teach my live classes on Wednesday mornings, then meet my mom and go to the treatment room for my weekly dose… Chemo is not funny. She wrote, “Cold Caps Are No Joke.”

Hainsby said that the next thing that will happen is that her portacath, which is a device used to give medicine, will be taken out and she will get two weeks of radiation therapy.

As for the future, “treatment will continue for a long time,” and for me, hospital visits are the norm.

Nearly six months after being diagnosed, her outlook is good.

She wrote, “I’m in great hands, and I’ve got this.” “No one wants to be told they have cancer while sitting in a room, but I’ve always felt like one of the lucky ones.” “I am one of those who are lucky.” “I’m lucky to have been diagnosed early, to be getting treatment quickly, and to know I’ll be fine.”

She went on, “When things are like this, your outlook on life changes so much.” I think that anyone who has had to ask, “Am I going to die?” A doctor or nurse would probably say the same thing. Then, though, you fight. You find strength in yourself that you didn’t know you had, and you keep going. strong, as healthy as possible, and in control of your life.

Her boyfriend is happy for her.

Alldis wrote, “I love you, @leannehainsby.” You have repeatedly demonstrated in the last year why I am the luckiest person on the planet that you agreed to marry me. Keeping your cool, being kind, and still being there for others while you’re going through all of this is a sign of strength. “Your light is shining more brightly than ever.”
