A fit and healthy yoga instructor made the brave decision to go under the knife for a preventative double mastectomy to reduce her risk of cancer - only to be diagnosed with leukaemia the following year.
Sophie Gray, from the UK but living in Australia, was 28 when she found out she carried the BRCA gene which is a common precursor for breast cancer in women.
So she decided to remove her breasts to giver her the best chance of a cancer-free life.
Shortly after she moved to Australia to live her 'best life' and told FEMAIL she believed she had 'dodged a bullet'.
UK born Sophie Gray, pictured, had a preventative double mastectomy at 28 but a year later just two weeks after this photo was taken she was told she had blood cancer
Weeks later she was fighting for her life in hospital and facing the reality of a 'very scary' stem cell transplant which would either kill her or give her a chance at life
Now the 31-year-old is determined not to waste the extra life she has been given
But then in 2019 her whole world was turned upside down when routine blood tests revealed she had leukaemia.
'To be diagnosed a different kind of cancer was a big knock for me. It felt like a big kick in the teeth because I did everything in my power to avoid cancer.
