Sky Sports host Jo Wilson declares her cervical cancer in front of media

Jo Wilson, a broadcaster for Sky Sports, has revealed that she has stage 3 cervical cancer, which has progressed to two of her lymph nodes.

Jo – who has presented on Sky Sports since 2015 – was diagnosed this summer and is currently undergoing chemotherapy and radiotherapy. She recalls being in tears and being in shock when she initially heard the news, along with her husband Dan and their 23-month-old daughter Mabel.

I sobbed while a sweet nurse comforted me. Dan was quite surprised because he didn’t really think it would be cancer when I started crying in front of him. You’re hoping your life depends on the possibility that it’s not,’ Jo told OK! Magazine.

She worried that she might “die,” but the doctor calmed her, saying, “It’s highly treatable and it’s very curable.”
After getting a smear test in June, when a gynaecologist first detected indications of cancer, Jo announced her diagnosis during Gynecological Cancer Awareness Month.

While carrying her baby, she was actually scheduled for a smear, but she postponed having it done because of the painful forceps delivery that caused both her and Mabel to contract sepsis.

After originally skipping her smear, Jo is now urging other women to do the same, calling it “terrifying” to think she could have delayed the appointment even longer. “I don’t want anyone to go through what I’m going through right now,” he said.

Jo also discussed her concerns regarding the treatment, noting that her calendar is now occupied with hospital visits rather than work shifts.

Despite the 70% success rate, she is still concerned about the 30% failure rate. However, the presenter is “clinging to the positives” and claims to have “everything in my favor,” including her youth and physical fitness.

The absence of control might be challenging because the outcome of the treatment is either positive or negative. I’m attempting to stay in the now and get through this.

After being diagnosed this summer, Jo Wilson, 37, who has hosted Sky Sports since 2015, is having chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment. The presenter admitted that after hearing the news, she sobbed uncontrollably.

The presenter opened up about her diagnosis in a new, frank interview and said she was “shocked” by the news.

The anchor, who is proud mum to 23-month-old daughter Mabel, said she broke down in tears to her husband Dan as doctors delivered the news.

The speaker also discussed her concerns on the prognosis for women with cervical cancer. She is speaking out to promote screening testing for women during Gynecological Cancer Awareness Month.

I try to keep onto that, but there are no guarantees, she told the magazine. The percentages continue to be a little shaky.

“The effectiveness rate of this treatment is somewhere around 70%. I’ll take that, then. However, you are aware that there is a 30% risk that it won’t work. Jo said that despite her health condition, she is “holding onto the positives” and that she is optimistic, adding that the difficult therapy has already caused her to lose a stone.
