Sinead Tinker is facing an impossible decision over the health of her baby as her cancer treatment progresses in Coronation Street.
The mum-to-be is struggling with the dilemma of how the chemo might affect her unborn baby, as well as how awful it makes her feel afterwards. Her priority is her child, and shes in utter turmoil while Daniel is putting pressure on her to keep forging ahead with treatment.
Daniel is completely unaware that she cancelled the second appointment after she said shed had to rearrange, and has no idea she doesnt want to go back. But the more he pushes her, the more she withdraws into herself.
To take her mind of things, Sinead goes for a homeopathic massage where she meets a young mum to be who talks about the fact she had cancer too but stopped chemo and swapped it for homeopathy, also adopting a strict diet.
Sineads interest is peaked, and she decides she wants to learn more about the alternatives – perhaps she doesnt have to have another session of chemo at all.
Sinead invites her new friend Steff around for a cup of tea and they talk about all things homeopathy and it becomes clear that Sineads head is as far away from chemo as it could be. Could she risk her own life for the sake of saving her baby?
