Smulders discusses Ovarian cancer
25 Apr 2015 16:04
Avengers' star Cobie Smulders has discussed her private battle with ovarian cancer for the first time.
-
In the May issue of Women's Health the 33-year-old Canadian actress revealed that she was diagnosed with the disease during the third season of How I Met Your Mother when she was only 25.
-
"I had tumours on both my ovaries and the cancer had spread into my lymph nodes and surrounding tissues," Smulders recalled.
-
She underwent multiple surgeries over the course of two years in order to remove the cancerous tissues.
-
Shortly after, she gave birth to her daughter Shaelyn, now 5, with husband Taran Killam. The couple welcomed a son in January.
-
"I don't think I'll ever feel like I'm cancer-free," Smulders admitted. "Now that I'm five years out, I'm trying to think of it as a positive thing and what can I learn from it. And if I can create more awareness, I'll do it."
