Sophie’s Story (Cervical Cancer)

Sophies-story-cervical-cancerIn January 2018, I attended my pap smear. In February, I was brought in to my local hospital for further testing due to ‘abnormal cells’ found on my smear. A further visual inspection of my cervix was carried out and biopsies were taken from inside my womb.

Two MRI scans later, I was diagnosed with cervical cancer stage 1b1. I was absolutely devastated with this news. My daughter was eight months old at the time and all I could picture was her growing up without her Mummy.

My valentine’s day card from my rock of a boyfriend simply read ‘stay strong for us.’

Fortunately I had an operation to remove the cancer and surrounding lymph nodes. I am still being re-evaluated every three months but remaining positive. I have my family and I have a future.

I have gained so much strength from reading other survivors stories. Having reassurance that other women had been in my position and had successful treatment was crucial to me.

I hope my story gives hope to others in the harrowing journey through cancer.
