Hereditary Cancer Week
I was diagnosed with advanced stage 3C high-grade serous ovarian cancer in December 2020. The one thing I wish I knew about myself was that I carried the BReast CAncer genetic mutation, also known as BRCA-1. The BRCA mutation has a 50% chance of being passed down by your mother and/or father. Cancer was not prevalent in my family that I was aware of, other than my father having prostate cancer and ultimately passing away from lung cancer in 2009. Who knew that prostate and ovarian cancer were closely related? I sure didn't! I figured as long as I continued to stay healthy, workout and eat right, I would be good. I was wrong. By no means am I telling people to not take care of themselves cause either way you'll get cancer. No! I believe being healthy when I got cancer saved my life. What I am saying is, know what is lurking inside your body. 📷 Nov 2020 Month before my diagnosis

Nicely done, Cindy! You are an inspiration for all of us. I wish I had done this also.
Cindy, I'm glad to hear that the ManScape 3.0 was unused. I was concerned for a minute.
On a serious note sometimes we don't know what to say to friends and family that have cancer and right now I'm having that moment. What I do know is how strong you are and that you're gonna give everything you've got!
I love that you are blogging about your journey! Definitely one of the strongest woman I know! Kick cancer's ass, girl! You've got this!
Your an inspiration to many women even if you don’t know it right now. Cancer sucks! But we are warriors and you never fight alone.
