I was 32 years of age and fed up with some changes I had noticed with pain and cycles so I booked in for a Cervical Screening Test and check up. Every result kept coming back positive and positive.
I ended up having 2 small cancerous tumours high in my cervix. Just as COVID-19 hit, I was booked in for a hysterectomy. Having this downtime locked in with my business being closed down with restrictions, I felt lucky to be able to heal and deal with what had happened. I am so grateful I listened to my body and knew something wasn’t right.
With no family history at all and to me, being young, I urge every woman out there to keep up-to-date with screening and listen to your body. This literally saved my life. I can continue being a wife and mum to my gorgeous girls and teach them how important this is.
Always stay up to date with screening and listen to your body for any changes!
