Natasha a convincing advocate for earlier smear testing

Editor's Viewpoint

Published 12/04/2016

Many people may be reluctant to talk publicly about their poor health, but sometimes this can help others.

Today we feature Natasha Cairns, who speaks out strongly about being diagnosed with cervical cancer at the age of  24, and calls for the age of tests to be brought down to 18.

Natasha was fortunate to be diagnosed at an early stage and she wants other women to have the same chance of survival. She is brave to speak out about the subject, and she is right to do so.
