Cervical Check campaigner Lynsey Bennett has reunited with her family after returning home from a cancer treatment clinic in Germany.

Taking to Instagram the mother of two shared pictures as she arrived back to Dublin via Ferry.

Tagging one picture at Port of Dublin, the Longford native looked across the sea at the Poolbeg Towers and wrote: “See you soon babies.”

In another story she shared a viral reel of children dancing and captioned it: “Get me to the dancefloor. Literally me after 3 weeks of healing in Germany.”

Finally reuniting with her youngest daughter Hailee (8) she shared an adorable pair of their reunion where the adorable young girl welcomed her mother home with a bunch of pink balloons with one reading ‘Welcome home mammy.’

“Eeek, my first baby collected,” she captioned the picture as they headed off to reunite with her 12-year-old daughter Zoe.

In February during an appearance on Ireland AM on she recalled an incident where Hailee daughter got upset while leaving her mother for the weekend and told her not to die when she was gone.

“Hailee was going to her dad’s,” she began telling presenters Muireann O’Connell and Tommy Bowe.

“She's going out the door and she's hugging me goodbye, and I knew she wasn't in great form, and she just turned around and she [said] ‘I hope you don’t die, goodbye’ and she ran out the door.”

“It literally broke my heart,” she said.

“I was just like… it’s just so playing on her mind.”

Lynsey has reassured her daughter that while she does not know how long she will be around, she is doing everything she can to stay around for longer.

The Longford woman also explained that she undergoes treatment first thing in the morning before her youngest wakes up for school.

“I do two hours every morning before Hailee wakes up on my machines in my little treatment room that I have.

"Just to not have her being like ‘Oh yeah, Mammy’s got cancer and of course, she’s doing her machines’.

“Just to not be in her face with it.”

Meanwhile, her 12-year-old daughter Zoe attends a boarding school 25 minutes from their home.

“She doesn't see me rushing to the hospital, she doesn't see me do my machines and she's also getting into a routine where I'm not in her life everyday,” she said.

“I’ve been so honest with them from the start but in the most gentle way that I could,” Lynsey explained.

On Friday she spoke of her joy after spending her final day at the clinic ahead of her journey home.

The mother of two made her way to Germany in February to undergo further treatment for her invasive cervical cancer.

“The universe has had my back with this journey and the decision to go with my gut and looking at my body medically holistically aka WHOLE BODY.”

“Not just trying to attack the problem aka cancer, it’s looking at my entire make up, recharge myself,” she said.

“Mind, Body and Spirit and taking a look at the full picture to see what isn’t working to let my immune system let cancer grow…”

“I’ve been told that we all have cancer cells floating around our body every day and it’s only in the right terrain (aka the unhealthy one with enough factors) that cancer starts to stick and not be eliminated from my body,” she said.

“Which makes perfect sense to me, because the second I started to change my ways over a year ago (after 4 years of being told to eat and do what you want makes no difference).

“Suddenly news that in months this would take over my body was brought to a halt for an entire year and it was only when I went back to trying harsh things that it started again as harsh treatment affected my immune system.”
