3 MILLION WOMEN
An estimated 3 million women suffer from the aftermaths of gynaecological cancers when it comes to sexual wellness, body image and quality of life.
Determined to find answers, I embarked on a 1,095 day PhD journey. As I read stories from all over the world, I realised I can’t stop at gynaecological cancers: I want all women after cancer to find their beautiful again, to feel like a woman again, to have unshakable confidence in and out of the bedroom. My PhD is on sexuality and quality of life after gynaecological cancers. But, it’s not all about sex. It’s about self love, body love, touch, intimacy, connection, and of course, conversation.
Today, I celebrate seven years cancer-free and the birth of my baby girl against the odds. I know how overwhelming a cancer diagnosis is but also how rich life after cancer can be. I made it my personal mission to empower women to find their beautiful again and help those less fortunate than I was by getting involved in prevention, early detection, treatment and support.
