Freda Williams | Ovarian Cancer Survivor

“I’m celebrating today because I am free of ovarian cancer! About five years ago, I starting passing blood. My doctor referred me to a specialist who confirmed that something was wrong.

Cancer runs in my family, so when I noticed something was wrong, I got it check out quickly.

I came here to UAMS and had surgery right after Christmas. I remember it was snowing when I went back home to Harrison in early January.

Since then, I’ve come back for appointments every six months. Now, I’m happy to say I don’t have to come back for one year.”
