Emma Robinson has been diagnosed with terminal cancer at the age of just 46 and she is speaking out about it because she believes it is being considered a taboo subject.

According to Leicestershire Live, Robinson wants everyone to know that her death will be due to a rare but dangerous cancer of the vulva, which people do not like to talk about much.

“I have cancer of the vulva,” Robinson told the online source. “It’s seen as a taboo subject but it’s going to claim my life.”

She further explained that she knows of several people who have died from the disease as they wouldn’t even see a doctor because of embarrassment. “It’s absolutely crazy, and heartbreaking,” she told.

Robinson now desires to raise awareness about letting go of one’s reservations and speaking out more directly about their own body.

She told the source that she wants women to be “aware of their bodies and intimate areas.” She also advised women to have the confidence to go check out if they find anything suspicious. At the end of the day, one’s health is the most important things, she claimed.

Recalling about her own life, Robinson admitted that she was always a “joker in the pack” who loved laughing and messing about with her friends.

She has three children – 26-year-old son Kyle, whom she describes as her “rock,” 17-year-old daughter Katie-Louise, and 15-year-old son Jake.

Robinson believes that despite her cancer, she has been “lucky” in life in many different ways. She is grateful for having been blessed with a “wonderful family” and to have made some great friends.

She has divorced from her husband, David Oldfield, who is a father to Katie-Louise and Jake, more than 10 years ago, but the two of them have always remained close.

Robinson admitted that, in her time of grief, he has remained one of her biggest supports. She explained that he was her good friend and she couldn’t have asked for a better father for her children.

Now, she has made it her life’s mission to teach the all-important lesson to the women about staying aware of their own body. “It is unlikely that your symptoms are caused by a serious problem, but it is important to be checked out,” she stated.
