Julie never thought she would get cancer. There is no family history and she has led (so she thought) a relatively active healthy lifestyle up until her diagnosis in May of 2020.
Her mission is to educate women about the silent danger of GYN cancer and the real risks outside of genetic mutations. Her belief is that too much marketing around genetic testing is putting a damper on real medical risks for the occurrence of GYN cancer.
Risks include never attempting pregnancy, history of endometriosis, history of hormone replacement therapy, being overweight, never being on birth control, and most importantly—-the myth that women believe no annual pelvic exam is needed after OB care is completed from birthing a child.
Julie hopes that her blog will alert women. With the hope that a reader will be motivated to seek excellent medical care with a GYN physician in the hopes that GYN cancer can be caught early.
