Hello! I am putting together an e-book on "Surviving Cervical Cancer". My goal is to inspire other women with stories of those who have survived Cervical Cancer. I would love to include as many personal survivor accounts as possible. These stories will remain anonymous.

If you would like to be included in this project of mine, please discuss the following in your own words:

How did you feel when you found out you had Cervical Cancer?
What was your initial reaction?
How did you cope with this?
What symptoms did you experience?
What was your diagnosis?
What treatment was used to treat the cancer?
Were any alternative treatments used?
Discuss any choices and decisions involved in the treatment process.
What emotional aspects were involved in the treatment process?
Please add any additional information that you would like included about your personal story.

I thank you greatly for your time!

How did you feel when you found out you had Cervical Cancer?
Terror, scared, and totally relied on doctors and oncologist
What was your initial reaction?
Scared but wanted to deal with it
How did you cope with this?
Got treatment as soon as possible and trusted my oncologist -"biggest mistake"
What symptoms did you experience?
Just abnormal bleeding
What was your diagnosis?
Stage 1B cervical cancer
What treatment was used to treat the cancer?
Surgery, radiation and chemotherapy - again biggest mistake
Were any alternative treatments used?
Not at that time as oncologist wouldn't look into them. Now that I am "terminal" I am surviving on my own with my own research into Low dose naltrexone. Saved my life.
Discuss any choices and decisions involved in the treatment process.
ALways pushed to see oncologists, etc. but they can only treat so far and NO BENEFIT at all. I would never see an oncologist again. They lie and are totally distrustful. Lost so many people this year due to following oncologist protocol.
What emotional aspects were involved in the treatment process?
You have to take your own cancer into your own hands and treat yourself. The cancer industry is corrupt as ever.

Please add any additional information that you would like included about your personal story.
