On the 25th of January I had my first smear and by the 12th of March I was diagnosed with cervical cancer. I have since had operations and many treatment plans and on the 14th of May I was officially given the all clear. Who knows what position I would be in if it wasn’t for all of the research, amazing doctors and nurses along the way.
Although the main battle feels like it’s coming to an end, I know there will be many more in the future. With the continued support from all the professionals, my family and my friends I know I will get through whatever is thrown at me.
Please - to all girls out there, cancer has no age limits. I had no symptoms at all and I was still one of the unlucky ones. If you’re due your smear and haven’t had one yet, please book it ASAP because it really does save lives.
Cancer is happening right now, which is why I'm taking part in a Race for Life Pretty Muddy to raise money and save lives.
1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Every single pound you donate makes a difference to Cancer Research UK’s groundbreaking work, so please sponsor me now.
