Brittany Crosby Bravely Fights Stage 3C Ovarian Cancer

Physical challenges that come with treatment

It was hard for Brittany. She was used to being a perfect condition. She is an online fitness coach, so was very healthy and in peak physique when she received her diagnosis. It was a drastic change going from living healthy to being hooked to tubes and IVs in the hospital. She wasn't able to eat anything for 2 weeks, and wasn't able to drink for 8 days. It was a drastic change for her. Though she was slim to begin with, cancer took what was left of her weight. Brittany was so frail that she could not even stand on her own. She was weighed every day in her hospital bed. Doctors said she weighed under 100 pounds after her surgery.
