Whether you have been a shoulder to cry on or have taken on tasks like lawn care and babysitting, we want to know how you have supported your loved one.

I have cervical cancer

I have been treated for cervical cancer for the last five years - I am 64 years old, the cancer is (to the best of our collective knowledge - nearly 30 years old) - I receive treatment of chemo once a week, and support/stabilizing drugs four days a week - for the past five years.... I encourage every women out there to five an excellent doctor, get checked often - I went every six months - they either didn't look or didn't see it (?) - if you still don't feel well, or there are other problems, don't wait, don't put it off, take it seriously, it is serious.
