MEET CHANTEL

My name is Chantel Stuart, I’m 38 years old and I have been battling cancer since March 27, 2017. My symptoms came on like a freight train and within 2 weeks I was at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN and I was diagnosed with Cervical Adenocarcinoma stage 2B. The second day I was there I went in for exploratory surgery to determine the extent of the cancer. My team of doctors developed a treatment plan within the next few days and I began treatment the week after. At my last check up at Mayo I was told if my current chemotherapy stops working they weren’t really sure they had anything else to offer me. It was incredibly disheartening and I felt like I was being given up on. It’s been a few weeks since my last appointment and I am currently waiting to be seen at MD Anderson in Texas for a second opinion. I am hopeful that my miracle is still out there.
