Hello katiegrace, 

Welcome to our forum. It's always nice to hear from cancer survivors. I thought I'd introduce you to the lovely @LauraP ‍ who also had cervical cancer and who will understand what life can be like after a cancer diagnosis. 

I am sorry to hear that you've got family members currently going through cancer. We'd love to hear more about your personal cancer story and also about that of your family members. I hope they are ok at the moment. 

Best wishes, 
Lucie, Cancer Chat Moderator

Hi Katie,  I’m glad you too are a survivor of cervical cancer! I think one of the best things we can do as a survivor is to encourage others when they are battling this awful disease. I’m sorry you have family suffering now and I hope you are able to guide  or comfort them as best you can. If it is too overwhelming, though, don’t feel bad, you can talk to us here or maybe a therapist(I do!).  What stage was your cancer and how long since your treatment ended?  Mine was 2A, and I am almost 7 years post treatment. 

Laura xx
