She was fortunate that the cancer was detected in the initial stages, during an annual medical check up. Due to an early diagnosis, the cancer was treatable, she said.

Feeling grateful for an early diagnosis, she stressed the importance of regular check-ups for ladies once a year so that any abnormal growth can be detected early.

"Ladies, get your breasts checked out. Preferably by a health professional," says Riley.

She is recovering and responding well to treatment.
