I was 21 when I was told I had cervical cancer. Young as I was, I never imagined I would face cancer that early – or ever. Although it was hard, I knew I had to make peace with my condition and find out what treatment options are possible, some of which I had to make in advance. The two things I wanted most was I didn’t want to suffer and to ease my family’s worries if my condition takes a sudden turn for the worse.
