Due to cancer treatment, she suffered from sore mouth. In order to prevent further problem, she had to eat soft food items. "Because of the side effects of the chemotherapy I suffered a sore painful mouth, so I'd eat soft food such as mashed potato covered in butter and cheese", said Oliver.

All these things made her gain weight and she was around 17 stones. Treatments were making things even more difficult, as joint pain became common and she was unable to carry out basic activities. It was then that she decided to do something for her and started losing weight.
