A young mum-of-four has died after a year-long battle with cervical cancer.
Sadie Blackston, from Kent, was just 25 when she passed away surrounded by family and friends in her family home.
She left behind her four children – Morgan, seven, Kenzie, five, Ellisia, four, and two-year-old Harvey.
Blackston was diagnosed with cervical cancer in January 2016, and underwent chemotherapy and radiotherapy before doctors told her the cancer had spread to her cervical lymph nodes and was no longer treatable, Kent Online reports.
The cancer was so aggressive it destroyed part of her bowel, and Blackston was living with a colostomy bag and a catheter.
Sadie's younger sister, Lizzie, has claimed Sadie was not offered a pap smear test by doctors because she was 'too young'.
