Did that title stop you in your tracks?
I don't know if you are aware but March is ovarian cancer month.
A deadly disease that is the fifth most common cancer for women and one that is extremely close to my heart.
No doubt what most people think about when the read this title would be Jade Goody
Who lost her own battle to cervical cancer.
For me I also think closer to home.
I have had cancerous cells burnt away a grand total of 4 times and thankfully they look like they are gone for good now. But I can't tell you how scary it is to be told you have cancerous cells and the impact it has on your whole family.
My mother, as you are aware was also diagnosed last year with ovarian cancer which thankfully was all removed successfully. And I can't praise the doctors and nurses enough for the care they gave her.
The reason I am sharing all this information with you is to give you the "kick up the butt" so to speak to make sure you go and have your smear.
It doesn't matter if you have been with the same person for years and years the HPV virus, a main cause of cervical cancer, can sit dormant for 20 years!
So please just a few moments of discomfort and the benefits definitely out way the cons!
