Last year, Willers revealed she had been diagnosed with breast cancer in 2019, saying on Instagram: "If I look like I’ve just been through a war, it’s because I have. On 29 Nov. 2019 I was diagnosed with stage 2 triple negative breast cancer.

"This was also the day I wrote the last exam of my law degree… while waiting for the call bearing my results. I choose to say: still healing. Still improving. Every day I draw another breath… still WINNING.

"The world buckled down and braced for the impact of COVID-19 while each day I was terrified that an encounter with the virus while on chemotherapy could result in my death due to my compromised immune system."

She then went on to thank friends, family and loved ones "for being more than any label can ever encompass since we met twelve years ago… but my brother and best friend through it all."
