After meeting while on a trek raising money for breast cancer, Nadia Sawalha and Hannah Gardner immediately clicked. With a shared fear of heights, the pair helped each other venture across the Himalayas and have been close ever since, even forming the ‘Fab Four’ with two other pals. “We just connected on a cellular level.

She's very beautiful and vulnerable, but incredibly strong and powerful, smart and bright. I think I felt a really strong maternal instinct with Hannah right from the first day I met her,” Nadia, 59, tells OK!. “I couldn’t have got round the Himalayas without Hannah because she was the only person who was as scared as me.

She's just a really special, beautiful soul.” However, the pair’s friendship has taken on a whole new meaning. After Hannah, 37, was given a primary breast cancer diagnosis in 2013, the cancer returned in 2017 and in 2020.

Sadly, in June 2022 she received the devastating news that she had incurable cancer. Now she and Nadia, as well as their Fab Four friends, are campaigning together to secure the life-extending drug, Enhertu, that Hannah needs. “The Fab Four girls are like the aunties and big sisters that I never knew I needed,” Hannah says. “They're not just behind me, but they’re alongside me and are leading the charge with it all.
