THURSDAY, Jan. 23, 2020 (The Chicago Tribune)—“It happens when you least expect it… It was my last semester before it was time for me to graduate. That’s when I found out.”
Morgan Park resident Angela Williams was 40 years old in 2015 when she received a diagnosis of cervical cancer following a routine gynecological checkup.
“There are so many emotions when you hear the word cancer the first time around,” she said. “It was like, ‘OK, we can give you a hysterectomy, and then you’ll be OK from there.’ I was upset, but I thought there are a lot of people who don’t make it. So take this surgery, and do what you got to do.”
