There’s not a ‘small’ cancer. When you get that diagnosis, it is so scary. You have to stop and take that breath like, ‘Oh my God, how is this going to change my life?'”

I just found out on my last scan that I no longer have cervical cancer. I went through that. I was silent about it. A lot of people put their big news out there and to me that’s private.

I had it twice before, and this last time I had treatments for nine months. It was scary, especially with the controversy over the health insurances. My doctors that I had for the first go arounds? They left to a different network. I couldn’t go back to them. There’s not a “small” cancer. Yes, mine was treatable, but some of them aren’t. When you get that diagnosis, it is so scary. You have to stop and take that breath like, “Oh my God, how is this going to change my life?”
