“The Salons Supporting Screening community will open up conversations and this is what I am most excited about"

Posted on: Tuesday, 25th June 2019 by

In 2016, I was a full-time police officer. I’m also a mum and at the same time was setting up my own business: a hair and beauty salon which I opened in the March. Needless to say, life was very hectic! It had been about 8 years since I last attended cervical screening (a smear test). My shifts would often change meaning I would have to cancel appointments, and so it was very easy to put it off.

Today is Valentine’s Day where we show how much we love our significant others or friends. We aim to support everyone who is affected by cervical cancer, including the important people in their lives. We’ve been lucky enough to speak to a couple of men who have been through what may be the most difficult thing their relationship ever goes through.

"I felt honored to be part of such a positive event"

Posted on: Wednesday, 24th May 2017 by

In the summer of 2013 I was diagnosed with stage 3b cervical cancer. I had always been vigilant about having cervical smear tests and STI screening. As a nurse working in the community I had also been part of a team delivering the HPV vaccination. On some level, it was a relief to finally know what had been causing the symptoms that I had been experiencing for several months. I’d been seen by the GP and at A&E numerous times. I had begun to think that I was overreacting to the pain and bleeding I’d been suffering with.

"Since battling cervical cancer I have definitely had a new outlook on life"

Posted on: Thursday, 14th July 2016 by

I volunteer my time to Jo’s whenever I possibly can to prevent other women from going through what I have and to ensure that anyone who does has access to the best information, support and care.
