The moderator is insecure, she is not part of the at-risk group for breast cancer patients. But doctors detect microcalcification in Alia's right breast: The headmistress has breast cancer.
But Meyer remembers the shock of the time
"I didn't really want to pay attention to breast cancer prevention. But now it is." Meyer says in tears.
Today, Ali remembers the shock of the time: "Everyone asked me then, aren't you glad it was discovered so early?" No, I was not satisfied. I was sad and angry and sometimes wished I hadn't done a mammogram. "
"Every doctor has recommended this radical surgery to me"
Today, the 41-year-old no longer thinks so, but it took her a while to make the diagnosis: "On the one hand, I was told I had the lowest cancer level, I had the best chance of healing, the cancer was not spreading, but all the Doctor recommended this radical surgery, a breast mastectomy. And it took me a while to get there, so it would be best for me to have my breasts removed. "
Two months after the current, Ali's breast is removed and reconstructed at the same time, which is only possible because the tumor is detected at the smallest stage, thanks to mammography.
"My advice is: don't be as stupid and naive as I am!"
But Meyer continues, "My advice is, don't be as stupid and naive as I am and believe you don't date anyway. I was super healthy, I felt great, I looked good, I breastfed four kids, I didn't smoke, I had the ideal weight , I really wasn't a high-risk patient, I have no genetic bias. It all gave me the feeling that I couldn't get the disease. And I couldn't be more wrong. "
Today, one year after diagnosis, Ali is cancer free. With her video, she wants to recommend a check to all women.
