Willer shared the news of her battle with cancer on her social media.

“If I look like I’ve just been through a war, it’s because I have. On November 29 2019 I was diagnosed with stage 2 triple-negative breast cancer. This was also the day I wrote the last exam of my law degree … while waiting for the call bearing my results.

“I spent the past short while posting pictures taken around this time last year so I can show what a difference a year makes … and also to say that through all those changes, I’m still here. Still fighting? Does the fight for survival ever end? I choose to say: Still healing. Still improving. Every day I draw another breath … still winning.”
