Por redacción Nueva Mujer

Cheyann Shaw tiene 23 años, y hasta antes que le diagnosticaran cáncer de ovarios en etapa 4, se dedicaba a competir en competencias de trajes de baño. Decidió tomar su enfermedad como una oportunidad de documentar la forma en la que el cáncer transformó su cuerpo.

Con casi 200 mil seguidores en su cuenta de Instagram, la modelo decidió convertir su cuenta en un diario de las transformaciones que su cuerpo sufría con el tratamiento para derrotar a la enfermedad.

En un entrevista que dio al Daily Mail dijo que "el cáncer había tomado tanto de ella", que era imposible no compartir la forma en la que su vida cambió. Antes de la enfermedad se desarrollaba como competidora de la NPC de Seattle, la enfermedad ha evidenciado la forma en la que el cáncer acabó con su cabello y la masa muscular.

This is hard for me to post… Left- Before we knew I had cancer. I was a solid 130lbs and 15% body fat. Also had a nice little booty growing back there. – – Right- Taken yesterday. Stage 4 Low Grade Serous Ovarian Cancer. After almost 14 days in the hospital, a poop bag, and a major surgery; I stand at 105lbs. That's way to small for me. I'm 5″5. I lost everything. Cancer has taken so much from me. The body I worked so hard for 2 years to get, the ability to have and carry my own child, my hair, and so much more, but one thing for sure is that cancer has not taken my fight and faith. – – I will never stop fighting. I will never lose my faith. I will never let cancer win. Today has been a rough day for me mentally, but that's okay. I know tomorrow will be much better and I'm thankful to be alive and to see another day. I know GOD is up there working and I know he will give me the strength to fight, the light to see in the darkness, and will lay his healing hands on me. – – This is the toughest battle I have and will ever face, but I know I can do it. The hardest part of all this is my body change. I have a hard time looking at myself in the mirror but I'm learning to love myself again and I know this is only temporary. Once I get the clear light to workout, I'll be in the gym banging those weights💪🏻💪🏻 – – #fuckcancer #ovariancancer #seattleseahawks #bestself #selflove #npc #npcbikini #ifbb #npccompetitor #bikini #bikinicompetitor #bikinifitness #bikiniathlete #fitlife #fitspo #fitlife #follow #inspiration #happiness #womensfitness #womenshealth #motivation #squat #squatspo #country #countrymusic #countrygirl #smile #cheystrong

It's crazy where life can take you in just a short year. – – This time last year, I was on stage competing in my first fitness show💪🏻 Now I'm fighting for my life. – – The picture on the left is around the time they think my cancer started to form and we just caught it in August. Thankfully we have caught it in enough time that I am still able to fight and can kick Ovarian Cancers ass and be in remission one day, hopefully soon💙 – – At the end of the day, my life isn't where I ever expected it to be, but I'm thankful I am where I am. I truly believe God has a plan for me and I believe it's to help and inspire people. Just because you are going thru something, doesn't mean you stop living. I still go to the gym, I still laugh, cry, sing (horribly🙃), and just enjoy each and every second of every single day. – – Life is all about what you make it out to be; and I'll be damned if I let a little bit of cancer stop me from living my life to the fullest👍🏻💙 – – #fuckcancer #ovariancancer #selflove #bestself #fitspo #fitfam #fitlife #gymspo #npc #npcbikini #npcbikinicompetitor #npcathlete #gymshark #alphalete #squats #loveyourself #youtube #follow
