Remarkable Recovery From Cancer

Rebecka Blomqvist was only 22 years old when she was diagnosed with cancer.

She learned she required surgery in October 2020 during an ultrasound to remove a cyst from one of her ovaries.

The soccer star then received a call from the hospital one morning in December after the doctors examined the cyst.

Rebecka then got an invitation to a meeting that required her to bring a relative, and it was during this meeting that she was informed she had cancer.

After a challenging December filled with additional tests, the good news arrived on January 8, 2021, that the cancer was gone.

Rebecka stated, “In the midst of everything, I was lucky that it was discovered in time and that I escaped treatment. There are others who have a much harder journey in this.”
