Heather wants to share her story so that there is more awareness around cervical cancer.

I want to share my story, to help others be more aware of the symptoms of cervical cancer. So that girls under 25 that are not entitled to a free smear know what to look out for and for those who are over 25 be more aware of the importance of going for your smear.

Symptoms

  • Abnormal bleeding
    • heavy or longer periods
    • between periods
    • after sex
    • after menopause
  • Foul smelling discharge
  • Pain or discomfort in the pelvis or during sex
