  • I am a cancer survivor
  • Hi my name is Krystal. I was only 22 when I found out that I had cervical cancer. I had only been married 5 months at the time. I had originally went to the doctor for my pap smear and to find out if I was pregnant. I found out that I was not pregnant and that I had cervical cancer cells. My doctor then scheduled to have my cervix frozen and then talked to me about having children. He suggested that if I wanted children I should try and conceive within 5 years. He said the odds of cervical cancer cells coming bad are normal and that if I didn^t catch it in time the next time I might not be able to have children. A year later I found out that I was pregnant with my little boy and I am happy to announce that he is healthy and growing. He is now 7 months old. I have had 5 screening since then and all have came back normal. I continue to get checked every 3-6 months and stay on top of my paps. I was one of the blessed ones to catch it early and I know that it still affected me deeply. Cervical Caner is now part of my life and I pray everyday for my sisters who have had or have known someone with cervical cancer.
