Common Questions
What do I do next?
Make an appointment with your Gynecologist. Explain what you are feeling or experiencing, share any family history.
It came back positive, I have Cancer. What are my options now?

Well first, just breath. Go shopping, go to a movie, hug your family, eat dessert. But know, as you fight this, YOU COME FIRST! If there is a time for you to be selfish, it is now. You need the love and support of those around you, and you need to support yourself too.

Knowledge is power. Do your homework as to what different treatment paths are. Every case is very different, and caught at different stages. The solution to every cancer may not be a Radical Hysterectomy. It may not have to include Chemotherapy.
