Lets say thank you jos.

Hi everyone 

jos has been a fantastic help to me throughout diagnosis and treatment and these times post treatment.

i wanted to do something to raise awareness and raise a little money to say thankyou.

after speaking with fran from jos on Wednesday I ordered

 15 pin badges @ £1. Each that's for my family and friends. Some have given more than the £1

 so will be passing the extra money to jos. if we all did this to raise abit of money to say thankyou to this site I wonder how much we would raise / every little helps and also waiting for my posters to arrive ready to put up in a number of places ready for next week.

lets all pull together and do a bit.

wishing everyone good health and let's raise some money to say Thank you to jos...

The pin badges are a great idea.  I set up a monthly  direct debit some time ago, its only a small amount that I don't miss but builds to a good amount in a year.

Can honestly say I don't know what I would have done without Jo's.



2nd Sept 13 - told had Cervical Cancer

9th Sept 13 - MRI (stage later confirmed 1b1)

8th Oct 13 - Radical Hysterectomy (vertical incision) ovaries removed

16th Oct 13 - Readmitted with high temperature

19th Oct 13 - Collection/abscess identified, image guided drainage performed

25th Oct 13 - Emergency op for drainage of abscess

Informed whilst in hospital that no cancer was found in the lymph nodes and the margins were clear.

Hi Everyone

Jo's has been invaluable to me. Another way to say your thanks is to join the #SmearForSmear campaign on social media and get the word out. 

I am also donating proceeds from Phoenix cards this month

Dec 2012 - clear smear, annual smears recommended
