"I was diagnosed with cervical cancer during what was supposed to be the happiest time of my life--my first pregnancy. I was told to expect that my pregnancy would be terminated immediately and that I would not be able to have any other children. The disease tried to take away my most precious gift in this world--my now 15-year-old son."

 

I am a 15 year adeno-carcinoma (cervical cancer) survivor. I was diagnosed with cancer, during what was supposed to be the happiest time of my life--my first pregnancy. I was 19 weeks pregnant when the confirmed diagnosis was handed down to me. I was told to expect that my pregnancy would be terminated immediately and that I would not be able to have any other children. The disease tried to take away my most precious gift in this world--my now 15-year-old son. I was 26 yrs old and completely bewildered by everything happening to me at that moment.

I was blessed to be transferred to Montreal to be taken care of by the absolute crème de la crème. My son was finally born 13 weeks later and I had my life-saving operation.


Now I ask you to support me on the next phase of my journey—giving back! I walk for sisters, nieces, mothers, daughters, aunts and cousins and best friends and all who are--or could be--affected by cancer. Join me and one day we can talk about cancer as a past-tense disease.
