My experience with cancer is both as a survivor and a carer.
I was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2000 at the age of 30. In many ways I was lucky, the only treatment needed was a few surgeries, leaving me unable to have children but healthy and cancer free!
Last year my father-in-law became very ill with cancer. We brought him home and looked after him in his last weeks.
I relay to raise awareness, celebrate life and remember those who didn't make it.
