A YOUNG mum and aspiring doctor has shared her heartbreaking bucket list with the world while battling cervical cancer.
Abbie Colvin was just 19 when she was diagnosed over two years ago — now she wants to make the most of life by being her sister’s maid of honour and even learning how to “pole dance”.
Facebook Abbie Colvin is studying to become a doctor, but has been told she might not even see another Christmas after her cancer has spread
Go Fund Me This is the bucket list which Abbie’s sister Christie shared in a bid to help make some of her dreams come true
The inspirational mum from Poulton, Lancashire discovered she had cervical cancer during a sexual health screening in January 2017 and was told she would have to have a hysterectomy.
Resigned to never having a baby, she then incredibly found out that she was pregnant before her cancer treatment began.
Abbie gave birth to “miracle” baby Oscar in December that year and then immediately began three gruelling rounds of chemo — all while completing her exams at Manchester Metropolitan University.
But now her sister Christie says Abbie’s cancer has spread and has even been told she “might not see another Christmas if things keep going the way they are going.”
Christie therefore set up a fundraiser to help Abbie “make memories, with all her favourite people in the whole wide world”.
She added: “[Abbie’s] loved ones around her see her when she’s unable to lift her head off her pillow because she’s so weak from the treatment, her bald head because she’s lost all of her hair.
Battling cancer at such a young age has made me open to anything.Abbie Colvin
“She now wears size 0 clothing because she’s lost that much weight from being sick every times she tries to eat something.
“But no one would ever know as she holds her head high and has the happiest spirit you could ever imagine.
“She keeps fighting for her little miracle baby and I genuinely believe that’s what has kept her going.”
Other items on Abbie’s bucket list include “mend broken relationships”, “campaign for smear test age lowered” and “have sex under the stars”.
Speaking last July, Abbie said: “I have just carried on with my life. I carried on going to university. I just wanted everything to stay as normal as possible.
“I’m sick all the time, no matter what I eat. Most of the time I’m sick but I just get on with my day.
“Battling cancer at such a young age has made me open to anything. There is no point in sitting there worrying about things that are so insignificant and silly things like washing up or little arguments.

“I have changed as a person 100 per cent. I’m so much more open to doing things, I’m happy to go out and do stuff and enjoy life.
“I appreciate every day that I wake up. A positive mental attitude helps me through my treatment and to stay so strong for Oscar.”
