This Isn't Just a Scar From Ovarian Cancer — It's a Beauty Mark
Description
Model Elly Mayday, 28, is documenting her battle with ovarian cancer on Instagram.


"This was my 5th operation for Ovarian Cancer. I've been through more pain than most 28 year olds, but I am still whole. I've chosen to not let this disease define or deter me. I have love for my body, its strength and for what it has taught me. I'll do everything in my power to heal, and I have faith it will do its part. I want to teach you all the things I've learned, how strong, beautiful and capable the body is. Most importantly, I want to show you how you are still beautiful through the things life hands us. ❤ So, let's turn these scars into beauty marks."

When I got sick with cancer I sent Elly a message online asking how to prepare for chemo. Not only did she give me great advice. A beautiful box of things perfectly chosen for me by Elly arrived on my doorstep (I'm in the UK). I used every one of those things during my chemo. Elly reaching out to me really brought some light into a dark time.

Elly is so inspirational - not just to the Ovarian Cancer community but to those of us who are fortunate enough not to be dealing with cancer at all.  She is honest and upbeat and supportive and never asks for anything for herself.  She truly embodies your "Be Kind to One Another" mantra.

Elly is such an amazing role model for anyone dealing with cancer. She wears her scars proudly and shows such courage. Just an all round wonderful person. I feel Elly should be on your show to share her story for those who are maybe going through Ovarian cancer, she is a very real person. Very Genuine.
