Amy Dowden released an emotional video on Saturday that left her fans in tears, marking a year since her aggressive stage three cancer diagnosis.

The Strictly Come Dancing professional, 33, reflected on the past 12 months since her diagnosis last May and shared a montage of videos and photos documenting her journey and treatment. 

The heartfelt post showcased her various chemotherapy sessions, the emotional moment she began losing her hair, and when she eventually shaved it off. 

Set to Miley Cyrus‘ ballad ‘The Climb,’ the video highlighted Amy’s progress since the devastating news. 

She captioned it: ‘These past few weeks and especially days I’ve constantly been thinking this time last year I was having this test, or this appointment.

‘A year ago today it was confirmed what we thought it was but it became reality and my life changed forever when the Dr said we are sorry Amy it’s cancer. I can’t believe it’s been a year and all what my body has been through and achieved. 

‘A year ago Ben, myself and my twin sister cried together and had to pull ourselves together as we had to break the news to my parents and just knowing the heart ache and worry it was going to cause. 

‘I used to lay awake for hours with my mind going to all sorts of places, would I make it to Christmas, would I dance again, how’s Ben going to cope, I don’t want to lose my hair, you name it. I wish I knew then how I would be a year on. 

‘I told myself constantly this too shall pass and a year on, my hair growing back, my energy getting better and better, back dancing and most importantly spending time with my family and friends and appreciating life. 

Amy went on: ‘I have a new body i’m still learning to accept and like, but do you know what it got me through the hardest time and I’m so proud of myself. 

‘Too many people are affected by cancer and I’ll do all I can now to raise awareness and give back. To those struggling right now I’m sending you love and strength. To those family and friends who stuck by me I’m forever grateful to you! 

‘I know I’m lucky and blessed for another shot at life, here’s to a healthier, better, happier and dancing year ahead!’

The proffesional dancer Amy added: ‘Now a gentle reminder have you checked your chest this month? Early detection can save lives #breastcancer #breastcancerawareness #breastcanceryoung #checkyourself #oneyearon #mycancerjourney
