Nanci Bueno Venturi's story


Nanci is 48, married and has no children. She lives in Santo André, close from São Paulo. She never had any symptom, apart from strong colic and some gastric problems, which she was treating with specific medication and never thought it could be something to worry about.

One day, after lunch, she started feeling a strong abdominal pain and also had a significant increased abdominal size. These symptoms kept getting worse and she finally decided to look for a doctor. After many exams, she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer at a late stage in the end of 2011. To know more about her experience, click here (content in brazilian portuguese).
