I was diagnosed with cervical cancer when I was 19 years old and in college away from family and friends. I have had six surgeries, a quick bout of radiation, and after 4 1/2 years, I am finally done. I had my first “normal” check in 5 years today. Feels amazing! Not a low of people in my family or of my friends know about but after I got the good news today, I had to share. Any bees who have had a struggle, I’d like to hear your story!!

@Mrs.ChubbyBunny: Congrats!!!! that is amazing news!!! I am very happy for you!
I am not a survivor but my father had stomach cancer and my mother is a breast cancer survivor so I know how hard it is. I had my first scare last year at 25 yrs old when my mammogram showed hyperplasia and I had to get a lumpectomy, It did come back clear but did show I was high risk because of how many cells I have… still so confusing to me. The oncologist discussed putting me on tamoxophin ( sp) but thinks I should wait until I am finished having kids. My oncologist is amazing… She took care of my father and my mother so we already have such a bond. When she saw my name come through her office she was like ” You have to be kidding me” I actually go back tomorrow to get checked again…..
Again, CONGRATS on your amazing news!!!!!

I had cervical cancer at 20, but luckily it was caught early enough that I could get the Loop procedure done and be done with it. So thankful for that!
My dad had prostate cancer at 49, and it was a really agressive form, so they just removed his whole prostate. They also caught his early, so he didn’t have to have any chemo or radiation afterward. So glad my mom made him go her checked out!

I’ve never been diagnosed with cancer, but I just wanted to say congratulations on your results! I can’t even imagine the strength you have to have had to overcome this.
