Tonight Casualty aired viscerally upsetting scenes involving Mrs. Connie Beauchamp and her impossible struggle with Leiomyosarcoma - a rare soft tissue cancer.
For the first time we saw Amanda Mealing's character without hair as she bathed while drinking champagne in a luxury London hotel suite in the longest running BBC medical programme.
Amanda proved this evening how much of a phenomenal performer she is and fans took to Twitter to message their support to commend her on such a complex important episode.
Amanda herself took to social media to thank viewers for their love.
Leiomyosarcoma is a type of soft tissue sarcoma. Soft tissue sarcomas can develop in muscle, fat, blood vessels, or any of the other tissues that support, surround and protect the organs of the body. Leiomyosarcoma is one of the more common types of soft tissue sarcoma to develop in adults.
Casualty continues on BBC One & RTE One next Saturday at 20:25.
