Natalie Carney was just 22 when she was given the devastating news that she had cervical cancer. She faced months of gruelling treatment which has left her unable to have a baby.
Now, Natalie, from Mansfield is backing a campaign for the NHS to provide routine smear tests for young women from the age of 20 instead of 25. She believes that if she'd had the test earlier her cancer could have been prevented.
It was caught in time for her life to be saved but the treatment means she won't be able to have children without the help of IVF and a surrogate mother. Natalie is bravely speaking out in support of Cervical Cancer Awareness week.
