After a routine visit to her gynecologist, Haarlem Star faced a fear of uterine cancer after her doctor discovered abnormal cells in her uterus. After experts instructed her to do a biopsy, the cells were removed.

“It’s about being proactive instead of reactive and going for it, instead of reacting to something,” the 41-year-old said. “I didn’t take care of myself regularly.”
