I had my first prenatal check when I was four months along. (I didnâ€™t know I was pregnant until this visit to the doctor.) My doctor found a place he needed to check again and later found out I had cervical cancer. I was advised to terminate the pregnancy so they could take care of the cancer since they were unsure how far it had spread. I declined and gave birth to my amazing little guy. He was and still is perfect. After my surgeries I found out cancer had passed into the blood stream so I had a radical hysterectomy. Iâ€™m now cancer free. Having cancer affects your way of thinking. The word cancer changed my life, but I have learned to be strong and stay encouraged.
