I have just undergone an operation for cervical cancer

I am making this statement as I have just undergone an operation for cervical cancer, unfortunately because of radiotherapy; I asked the doctor to remove my ovaries as I was afraid there were metastases in them. I am 36 years old, and the tumour in my cervix was 8 cm in size, because of my morale and will to overcome this disease, I underwent chemo, radiotherapy and curietherapy, with the result that, before the operation, it was just 2 cm in size. I thus support all women afflicted by this disease, I encourage them to fight, morale is needed.

Think about my mother who died from ovarian cancer in 98, my struggle was for me but also for her, in her memory.
