The Finish Line star Sarah Greene opened up about the Ovarian Cancer symptoms that could have saved her mother's life, after she passed away just three and a half weeks after being diagnosed.

Marjie Lawrence, Sarah's mother, tragically died from Ovarian Cancer in June 2010, following an initial misdiagnosis as irritable bowel syndrome.The 66 year old presenter, who is back on our screens alongside Roman Kemp on BBC quiz show The Finish Line, appeared on This Morning alongside Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby back in 2017 to spread awareness about the disease.

Sarah is the widow of late BBC Radio 1 DJ Mike Smith and a former Blue Peter presenter. During the show, she confessed that had they been aware of the symptoms earlier, her mother might have had a chance at survival, reports the Mirror.

Sarah expressed: "With mum there were symptoms which had we known in advance we could have done something about it." She emphasised the importance of early diagnosis, stating: "If there is an early diagnosis and you know those symptoms the chances of survival double." As the daughter of Britain's pioneering DIY show host Harry Greene, Sarah has dedicated recent years to working with Target Ovarian Cancer with an aim to increase public knowledge of the condition.
