I had ovarian cancer in 2015 and my scar is from the operation which took over 5 hours. I am proud of my scar because it’s a mark of my survival and I wouldn’t be here today without it.
I had 6 courses of chemotherapy after the operation, and so my scar and I went through the hardship together. I remember each time I had chemo, it became fresh pink as if it was complaining.
For me, the whole experience of cancer was like a bad dream and the memory of it is already getting fainter after three years. So this scar is a reminder of what happened to me but strangely in a nice way. When I look at my scar, I feel extremely grateful that I managed to overcome cancer and still exist in this world. I think it’s cool it bends over my belly button shaped like Harry Potter’s scar.
