The case of Nicole Faverón was quite particular because, at only 17 years old, she noticed a strange lump in one of her breasts, so she quickly went in for a checkup. Her worst fears came true, as tests showed that she had breast cancer at such a young age.
The lump seemed to disappear at a certain point, but then returned, so the treatment had to be intensified and part of the breast was even removed. Over the years and following the medication, the former beauty queen was able to overcome the difficult episode and now she has become one of the images of the organizations that seek to encourage the fight against this ailment.
The model, host and beauty queen Adriana Zubiate was part of this group of women who suffered from breast cancer, since, at the beginning of 2007, said disease was detected. The results of the tests were not at all encouraging because the doctors told her that she had a tumor of almost five centimeters and even had part of the skin compromised.

There were eight chemotherapy sessions that helped the artist to overcome this neoplasm, despite the fact that each day could last up to 9 hours. Currently, Zubiate leads her life with complete normality and, despite the doctors’ warnings, she managed to have a daughter who is seven years old today.

That first confrontation ended with victory in his favor, although in 2007 his condition would return, but this time to the endometrium. A new operation marked the end of this disease in her body, so today she enjoys her days with what she is most passionate about: music.
One of the most important figures on national television in the 90s is undoubtedly Olga Zumarán. And although her cancer was not of the breast, but of the cervix, it is worth including her story among this group of brave women.

The interpreter had no qualms about completely removing the uterus in order to avoid following a treatment and that the evil compromises another part of her body. Now, she is the face of EsSalud’s oncology area to send a message to women so that they submit to discard tests on time and can continue with their lives.
