It was a new diagnosis with the severity unknown but I was heartbroken & so was she. We cried then pulled ourselves together and talked. I will always remember that day. I listened to her talking about plans for the security of her family in the event that she wasn't around and it wasn't easy to hear. It wasn't easy and it certainly wasn't fair!
I researched every day to send her a survivor story and there were times when these were hard to find. It doesn't mean there aren't any, it means people are living life after surviving cancer.
My sister recently had a scare following a smear test and her thoughts turned to the what if's. We automatically think of the worst when it comes to cancer but today I have some brilliant news to share.
Today as I was stood in the sweet shop waiting for the lady to count my sons sweets I had text message. After a very quick glance at my phone these few words bought tears to my eyes. 'MRI shows tumor is gone.'
This is a cervical cancer stage 2 survivor story! She had 6 weeks of chemo & radiotherapy at the same time and the tumor has gone.
She is amazing, she had both her boys birthday parties in the midst of treatment and she looked stunning as always. An inspiration, a great mum and a great friend who has beat cancer!
