Kamilla Barbosa's story


Kamilla is 23 and lives in Belém do Pará (north of Brazil). For more than a year she felt a very strong pelvic pain, but because of her busy daily-life, never had time to look for a doctor. When the symptoms got intolerable she realized that was time to stop and look after her health.

After spending a few days at hospital and doing some exams, she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Due to the diagnostic, Kamilla was forced to stop studying and focuses in her treatment. To share her experience she started blogging and it helped her to be in touch with other young girls facing the same problem as her.
