JEREMY CORBYN led messages of support to Labour general secretary Jennie Formby after she announced today that she is undergoing treatment for breast cancer.
Speaking on Twitter, the Labour leader said: “All my love to you Jennie, our wonderful general secretary.
“I know you will cope and deal with this in the admirable way you cope and deal with everything else.
“My heart goes out to you.”
Ms Formby, who replaced rightwinger Iain McNicol when he resigned the position last year, announced that she will begin breast cancer treatment this week.
She added: “Although this news has come as a shock to me and my family, I feel so grateful that I have the access and support from our wonderful NHS.”
Joining Mr Corbyn in messages of strength was Unite, where she was an official before taking up her current position.
A Unite statement sent her “love and strength – from all your friends in the union family.”
