All of my grandparents except for one died of cancer. I was 8 years old when my adored maternal grandmother left us with her last words to me, “Ciao amore.” I witnessed a beautiful woman of only 72 years, who was not able to eat anymore as cancer ate her stomach. She had to be artificially fed and hydrated. She never lost her smile and her faith. I want to do all that I can in order to protect young women and share information so that the next generation could be more protected, knowledgeable and not feel alone.
