A lot has changed due to the coronavirus crisis, but some things stay the same - this includes your GP’s role. They’re your first point of contact for anything that is concerning you. You might have to contact them in a different way, with lots of appointments being carried out on video or the phone, but the outcome should be the same.
During our 20th year, we’ve been speaking to people who have been supporting us over the years. Ted Tugwell has been fundraising for Jo’s for over six years with the goal of raising £200,000 after his wife sadly passed away from cervical cancer.
Lymphoedema can affect people in different ways. In this blog, Nicola shares her experience. Nicola was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2008 when she was 27. In May, she had a hysterectomy and all her pelvic lymph nodes removed. She then had chemotherapy and pelvic radiotherapy after regaining some strength, about 3 months later. She has been cancer-free since her treatment 12 years ago, but still struggles with lymphoedema in her left leg.

Today is World Cancer Day. This year, we’ve decided to talk about the importance of friendships, talking and support.
How you go through a cancer diagnosis and treatment can be a very personal experience, it can also be isolating at times. It can be hard to find others who can relate to what you’re going through and how you’re feeling.
To mark this World Cancer Day, we want to say you’re not alone and are sharing stories from our volunteers. We hear from Mandy, diagnosed with stage 1b1 in 2015 , Laura, diagnosed with stage 3 in 2017 and Hayley, diagnosed in 2017.
Can cervical cancer be eliminated? Are we close? Or are we actually seeing increases in diagnoses?
This week is Cervical Cancer Prevention Week, and while it’s great that there is so much attention on cervical cancer, there have been a lot of conflicting and maybe confusing headlines and we want to help you understand what’s really going on.
If you’ve been diagnosed with cervical cancer, hearing that you have or have had a cancer that can be prevented can be difficult. I and Jo’s truly understand how this could be the case especially during campaign weeks such as Cervical Cancer Prevention Week when our messaging around prevention gets much louder. So I wanted to take the time ahead of next week to explain why the week is so important.
