Stage 4 CC with Lung Mets CURED!!!! I bloody did it!!!!

Theres about a million emotions I'm feeling at the moment. I was a told Stage 4 Cervical Cancer meant I was Palliative and that I was probably going to die. I was told there was only a 5% chance I would be alive in 5 years time. Well guess what?????????? Today I had the results of my 5 year scan and for the first time I was told by my Oncologist I was cured. CURED!!!! I did it. I made it and I cant really believe it as I thought it was basically impossible. I've worked so hard and had the support of so many lovely people. I wouldn't have made it without my family and I cannot stress how important you ladies have been.

I know I am incredibly fortunate and I think of all you ladies all the time but bloody well done Anna you absolute fucking legend !!!!
