It was great to have Loreina on the show to share the story of her battle with cervical cancer. We were able to get just a few more moments with her to learn about her journey to parenthood:
January is Cervical Cancer Awareness Month. Based off of your own experience, how important is early detection?
So, very important! If I didn’t go in for my yearly pap, and catch it early, I would have probably needed chemo or radiation. A simple yearly pap can save your life. Early detection is everything!
What advice do you have for women who have been diagnosed with cervical cancer?
Try your best to stay positive. Change your diet and lifestyle! I cut out meat, sugar and dairy completely. Use foods as medicine, don’t eat foods that feed cancer.
As a result of having cervical cancer, what challenges have you faced, and how have you overcome them?
Not being able to conceive or carry has been the hardest challenge.
The egg retrieval process was very difficult for me because I don’t like shots or needles and I had to have multiple daily. Luckily, I have a wonderful husband who helped give them to me and calm me down.
