NCD Chronicles #15: Undefeated By Cervical Cancer

‘Twas the night before Christmas when Selina Yeop Jr’s world turned upside-down. Her doctor had just told her that she possibly had cervical cancer, a disease that previously had only belonged in the periphery of her consciousness. In conjunction with Cervical Cancer Awareness Month in January, Selina shares her journey from diagnosis to remission, and how she persevered through the therapies. We also check in with consultant gynaecological oncologist Prof Dr Woo Yin Ling to find out more about the burden of cervical cancer, and how screening, diagnosis and access to treatment needs to improve to meet the World Health Organization’s targets in order to eliminate cervical cancer as a public health problem. 


NCD Chronicles is a series about people living with NCDs, going beyond the diagnosis to explore their personal experiences, their challenges, as well as the impact of their health condition on their loved ones. These stories reveal the importance of understanding the unique struggles and needs of the individuals behind the disease, in our response to the NCD epidemic.
