TAKE ON CANCER FOR EMMA
“Like many others during the depths of Melbourne’s lockdown, I had taken to daily exercise as a way of coping. Even with all this hard work, I felt like my stomach was protruding further than ever before. The pain and discomfort grew severe enough that my GP advised me to go straight to emergency,” said Emma.
In the following days, Emma received a call from her gynecologist and to her disbelief, she was told she had a 13cm tumour on her right ovary, a smaller tumour on her left ovary and a smattering of small implants throughout her abdomen.
“When I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, I was in a state of pure shock. The thought of cancer never once crossed my mind, I was only 26 years old and certain it would be a cyst or endometriosis. There's so little awareness and information out there, I'd never even heard of the illness before I was diagnosed.
“It's incredibly daunting to be a part of a big campaign like this, however, I know that it’s so important for women like me to be represented in this way. I want to be a part of pushing this conversation forward, however scary that may be,” Fitzgerald said.
“For me, fighting cancer is such a raw, vulnerable experience. Kind of similar to being out in your underwear in public."
