The two brave girls experienced the shock after Tiffany showing her bald heads in a photo and Jessica uploaded an image showing the Hickman line into her chest.

Jessica said: ‘I was disgusted, angry and upset when my photos were reported.

‘Why anyone could go out of their way to sit and report my photos to try and get them removed when there are naked images constantly uploaded and shared so thousands of people can see them.

‘But I can’t share an innocent picture of my journey through cancer – I find it sickening.’
