Chicago Med star, Marlyne Barrett has come out to reveal that she has been diagnosed with uterine and ovarian cancer.

She recently had her say via her social media page, and fans have been reacting.

According to her, she has been quietly battling uterine and ovarian cancer after doctors discovered a large tumor on her uterus and left ovary in July.

Marlyne added that she was initially supposed to recover after 3 months, but an accumulation of fluid made things worse.

Her words, “In April, I had a hernia repaired. So initially, it was supposed to be a three-month recovery and I was going to be fine. And something started happening where I had this accumulation of fluid that I couldn’t shake.”

“I was definitely concerned that something was going on but I trucked on with the work. So by the time I went to see the doctor, they were very concerned. And when they did the CT scan, they found that I had an ovarian and uterine mass that had grown quite possibly to the size of a football.”

“I felt the responsibility to tell the story. I think that we as human beings when things like this happen, we hide away. We’re scared to tell people about it. We’re scared to face the mortality of life. We’re scared to pronounce the word ‘cancer.’ We’re nervous to share that when we have so much more strength than we think. I’ve had people shave their heads on set to support me.”

“I’ve had a sea of women and people contact me through Instagram that over the years that I’ve reached out to. I felt like they brought me courage. As I was progressing with work, I felt this sense of inevitability to have to meet their hearts where they met me.”
