In 2009 I was diagnosed with stage 1b2 cervical cancer, Not only was it devastating to me but to my whole family. I was told years before in 2000 after my son Troy Jr was stillborn I had hpv(human papilloma virus) but did nothing. My obs doctor told me I wasn't dying so I ignored it. If I would have known that I was going to suffer years later with an advanced stage a sista would have paid attention. Stage 1b2 means they caught the cancer early but I still had to go through chemo and radiation for 10 weeks. I would not wish that treatment on my cheating ex boyfriend lol. I laugh now but there was no fun in the poking, probing and daily poisoning my body endured. Well today I am over 5 years cancer free!!!!!! I am keeping my promise to help educate the people around me. Social media was not so big then but NCCC was an organization that I went to daily to meet with others like me. It was and still is a forum that is available to give non medical advice to others. Today I am a chapter leader for National Cervical Cancer Coalition with a mission to educate my community on HPV and Cervical Cancer. Please help me to get the facts out...
