Actress Cheryl Fergison OPENS up on her battle of womb cancer since 2015


EastEnders actress Cheryl Fergison has revealed in a candid new interview the details of her secret endometrial cancer battle.

She called it ‘horrendous time’ as she thought she was going to die after being diagnosed with stage two womb cancer in 2015.

What She Said

‘There were some dark moments, especially at night, when I thought, ‘Am I going to die? Am I going to leave my husband without a wife, my son without a mum?’, the 58-year-old told Ok! Magazine.

‘But the time is right to talk about it all now. I’m hoping my story might empower other women,’ she continued.

‘I’ve been through a lot but I’m still here. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.’ 

How She Learnt of the Cancer

She received her diagnosis after attending a regular smear test, which came back clear. But later, she started experiencing back pain and spotting blood which she knew wasn’t normal.

She then went to see her GP and she was referred for tests and a biopsy at a local hospital in Kent.

Four months after that she received the news she had stage two womb cancer.

She said: ‘I was in absolute shock; stunned to the core. I couldn’t believe the doctor was talking about me.’

Following X-rays, Cheryl was also recommended for a full hysterectomy just weeks later.

She Had Wanted Another Child

She told how this hit her hard in case she had wanted to have another child – after her chances of doing so were already reduced due to an early menopause.

Cheryl now lives with her husband of 12 years Yassine. She has a son Alex, 24, from her first marriage to Jamshed Saddiqi. 

She had only just married Yassine when the diagnosis came and felt sadness that ‘any thought of having a child together had been taken away’.

Cheryl Fergison played Heather Trott in the BBC soap from 2007 until 2012.
