Young mum told muscle pain was ‘early menopause’ dies of terminal cancer aged 27

Lizzy Evans was devastated after being diagnosed with cervical cancer not long after finding out she was pregnant with her fourth child.

The bombshell news meant she had to deliver her daughter eight weeks early so she could begin treatment as soon as possible.

In May last year, Lizzy, just 27-years-old from Bagillt, Flintshire, was given the all-clear.

But a few months later she began to suffer chronic muscular pain throughout her entire body, writes the Daily Post.

Doctors put it down to early menopause brought on by the cancer treatment.

However, the pain was so severe she called for an ambulance and further tests revealed her cancer had come back.

This time, it spread to her lungs, spine and brain – and it was terminal.

Lizzy spoke about her experience in the weeks leading up to her death.

She said: "I was pregnant with my youngest daughter when I started to bleed a lot.

"I was back and forth to the hospital and when they checked my cervix, they said it looked abnormal.

"I ended up having a biopsy, which resulted in me being diagnosed with cervical cancer."

She claimed her regular check-ups didn't happen due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Lizzy added: "To find out I had cancer in the first place was a massive shock and after I got the all-clear, we thought we could move on with our lives and get back to normal, then this was just the worst. "

Heartbroken, Lizzy and her family began a huge fundraising campaign to make memories with her children, nine, eight, two and one.

She married her partner Joshua Evans, 29, at her mother's house and hoped to start clinical trials.

Lizzy also had to make plans for her own funeral after being told by doctors there was nothing else that could be done to help her.

Sadly, the mum was told she was too sick to be eligible for the trials and she died surrounded by her family on March 31.

Her mother, Chrissy Davies, said: "We're all so heartbroken and missing her terribly. We love her with all of our hearts and more.

"Life isn't fair, it's been so cruel to Lizzy. She was only 27 with her whole life ahead of her.

"She left a big impact on everyone's hearts. Life is so empty without her and will never be the same again."

The fundraiser set up, by charity Belief, before her death is still active and more than £2000 has been raised so far.
