super hero stories

JASMIN

Diagnosed at 24; Super Hero at 25

"No one knows your body as well as you do. Sure, doctors are well trained and know what they’re doing. But nothing takes the place of your intuition about your health.

I was very fortunate in that my particular type of ovarian cancer was diagnosed at Stage 1. My symptoms of bloating, abdominal discomfort, back pain and more, were so sudden and so dramatic I simply couldn’t ignore them. 

Ultimately, early detection reduced the intensity of my treatment and improved my prognosis. And for that I am very thankful.

If you notice any sudden changes or irregularities regardless of your age, don’t dismiss them. Take them seriously and encourage your doctor to do the same."
