"Know your body"
Dr. Nadia Chaudhri gained thousands of followers after she opened up in May about telling her son that she was dying. With over 100k following her journey, Dr. Chaudhri decided to use her platform to raise awareness on Ovarian cancer and fill them in on her 'gritty' battle. "Know your bodies," Chaudhri tells women. "Pay attention to fatigue and changes in bowel/urinary tract movements. Make sure you understand all the words on a medical report. Do not dismiss your pain or malaise. Find the expert doctors."
