Cervical Cancer survivor/warrior

I know the title looks confusing. But I was diagnosed with stage 4 cervical cancer in February 2019. They hit me with some hard chemo & radiation followed by internal radiation. I was very lucky to not be sick. I was just really fatigued. The internal radiation gave me blisters on my booty but with iodine on it for 2 days they were gone! I beat the cancer in December 2019! The tumor was completely gone! I was going for check ups every 3 months for 2 years. I had one more 3 month check when it came back, this was October 2021. Right now we are doing immunotherapy. It came back in a lymph node near my lung. As before I have my faith & family by my side so I have no doubt I’ll beat it again. It’s just more difficult this time b/c at the same time I was re-diagnosed my husband was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s & FTD (frontotemporal dementia). I’m only 45 and he is only 56. It’s exhausting but I forget I’m fighting cancer b/c I’m so focused on him. So you ladies out there that have cervical cancer, have no doubt you CAN beat it! Keep the faith! You ARE a rock star!

    I know it’s been a long time but I was just diagnosed this week! I’m 34 and unsure of what to expect. We are starting with a total hysterectomy.
