After her appearance on My 600lb Life, Charity continued her weight loss journey, shedding an additional eight stone (113 pounds). However, she faced a challenging moment when diagnosed with kidney cancer in March 2020.

She shared her struggle on Facebook, expressing her fear due to her mother’s history of brain cancer. She said: “I found out at Christmas time that I have kidney cancer. It devastated me [because] my mom passed away from brain cancer. The next step was to get my kidney removed as soon as possible before it had a chance to spread to other organs in my body. So on March 2 my kidney was removed.”
