Well today I just wanted to talk to some ladies that I think can relate. It will be two years in October since my treatments, I had radiation and chemo. Anywho, recently some feelings have occurred that I havent had to deal with yet. First, a lady in my church was Dx about 6 months after I was and had the same treatments. Well she recently passed away this week. This is the first person I have known to die from cervical cancer. Sure I have heard the statistics, I heard of one person passing that I didnt know, only through a friend. I know this may sound crazy, but I guess the best way to say how I feel, is I realize people really do die from cervical cancer. I know that may sound crazy. I guess I feel to the general public, cervical cancer always seems to be the "treatable" cancer, not as serious. Such as breast cancer, etc. I have strong faith and I feel that is why I have not felt I may not make it. Maybe I just never dealt with the reality of what I went and are going through. Since I found out hers returned every ache and pain scares me now. Nevertheless, thank goodness for the good Lord, who has been my rock and support during all of this.
