A young woman from Liverpool is urging other women to be aware of the symptoms of cervical cancer, and to seek treatment if they should occur. 28 year old Jessica Dempsey from Everton was diagnosed with Cervical Cancer a year ago. Despite repeated courses of treatment the tumour hasn't gone away.

Now Jessica wants women to be aware of the signs of cervical cancer, and to keep appointments for smear tests. She also say that the repeated blood transfusions that have been necessary to complete her treatment have made her even more aware of the need for people to become donors.
