After being diagnosed with stage 2a2 cervical cancer when I had just turned 19, I was told I would need a full hysterectomy and chemo radiation. Meaning no children for me, and if I didn’t act fast, no life either. I had laser surgery to begin the process. Then... me and Oakley fell pregnant and we just could not pass the only chance we would get to have a baby up! I signed documents that I was refusing treatment to have my baby and that I took full responsibility for anything happened to me in the meantime. I had a beautiful baby boy, Oscar and was offered chemotherapy before the hysterectomy to see if we could save my cervix. I did two rounds of chemo in the end and came out with a clear PET scan. Nothing short of a miracle. Unfortunatly, my last PET scan was not clear and this may result in the hysterectomy and radiation therapy before it gets out of the doctors control. However, the Christie hospital saved my life and allowed me to have my beautiful baby boy. The worst that will happen to me now is no cervix so no more babies. And I think that’s pretty amazing to say my worst case scenario is no longer having no life and not being able to raise my beautiful baby. I can only thank The Christie and Cancer Research UK for this outcome. I don’t believe it is luck I believe it’s the work Doctors and Researchers do to try and cure this disease.
