Hi. My name is Julie and I had cervical cancer at the age of 29. I am 35 now and cancer free, after a radical hysterectomy. Cancer is a battle that is fought in your mind as well as your body, so soak your mind in positive uplifting things, and pray! For those beautiful ladies with scars on the inside and out, know that for the boys that leave, there are men that never will. I know what it is to be afraid, wonder about your children, your husband, your life-to feel alone and like no one has ever had cancer but you. To feel violated by procedures that are necessary but not welcome. To just want to go home. Cry because tears are healing. Laugh because you can! Pray because he hears you. Be thankful because today is the first day of the rest of your life, and you are still here. You are a survivor today. God Bless you!
