I wouldn’t be here if I did not insist on getting a scan.
I’m always enlightened and educated by hearing a cancer patient’s backstory and how they journeyed through the storm of treatment and recovery. That certainly was the case when I was joined in the HHI studio by ovarian cancer patient Kimberly Airhart, who was treated at City of Hope Atlanta.
Kimberly was diagnosed in February 2020 and at the time of our interview had no evidence of disease. A young mother of small children when she was diagnosed, Kimberly had to work through a wide range of emotions during her cancer journey. From feeling uneasy at first with her medical assessment to her motivation to start a cancer foundation after her treatment, Kimberly’s story will encourage and inspire you.

- “I think you have to trust your gut that there’s something wrong with you. I mean, you know your body better than anyone else.”
