It was the message Meagan Good didn’t want to hear.
Following a routine appointment with her gynecologist the HarlemStar was confronted with an uterine cancer crisis after her doctor found abnormal cells within her uterus. Experts ordered that she take a biopsy to remove the abnormal cells.
Nearly 10 years ago, Meagan partnered up with SHARE, Black Health Matters, Eisai Inc. and FORCE to create the Spot Her campaign. This will help increase awareness of endometrial carcinoma, which is the most prevalent type of uterine cancer. Meagan believes education is an important step in the prevention of endometrial cancer.
She shared, “It’s about being proactive rather than reactive. It’s getting in front and instead of reacting,” at 41 years old. I wasn’t looking after myself enough.”
Meagan recently separated from her husband. DeVon Franklin after nine years of marriage, is also focusing on her inner peace during this time of her life. It is vital to build a community of people that will always pray for and cover you.
