    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    I have recently been diagnosed with cervical cancer..Which was a great shock in its self but to discover that it is also spread to four other areas is rather heart stopping to me.

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Chemotherapy was for 7 sessions every Monday morning after radiation. I was extremely lucky compared to others i have talked with. I was blessed to have an appettite during the process and nausea was minimal. Hair loss was also very minimal, which totally shocked myself and others.
