Noelle Kouris was only 34 years old when she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. So naturally, the diagnosis came with a lot of serious questions — one of those being if she would ever be able to have children.
“I wasn’t really sure being 34 and single, no children, what that would mean for my future,” Noelle said. Noelle had surgery to remove a mass from her ovary. When she went in for the procedure, she says she was really worried about what would be left afterwards. “I wasn’t sure if I’d wake up with one ovary, a uterus, nothing … I still had a left ovary and a uterus, they were able to save those parts, so I was still able to, in my future, hopefully have children.”Read More
Noelle also said that she was able to get through her cancer journey with such a positive attitude thanks to her mother, who went with her to every single treatment. When it comes to cancer, support from family makes a world of difference, as does a happy and hopeful outlook.
