American actress and model Olivia Munn has opened up about her health challenges amid fight against breast cancer.

Munn in an interview with Good Morning America revealed that that her first thought was of her son Malcolm, 2, when she received her diagnosis.

“I mean, honestly, I just thought of my baby, you know, cancer is the — that’s the word you don’t wanna hear.

“There’s a lot of other things that you feel like you can beat. But you know, cancer takes down a lot of people. And I just thought about my baby”, she said.

The 43-year-old first announced her cancer diagnosis in an Instagram post in March, revealing that she had undergone four surgeries in 10 months.

“I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I hope by sharing this it will help others find comfort, inspiration and support on their own journey,” she wrote.

Throughout the 10 months prior, the actress had undergone four surgeries – including a double mastectomy, hysterectomy, and oophorectomy – after her doctor had calculated her Breast Cancer Risk Assessment Score.

“I have now had an oophorectomy and hysterectomy.

“I took out my uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries,” she said in an interview with Vogue.

She added that she had been diagnosed with Luminal B cancer, an aggressive, fast-moving form of cancer just two months after she had a normal mammogram.

“I’m lucky,” she wrote at the time. “We caught it with enough time that I had options. I want the same for any woman who might have to face this one day.”

Munn’s willingness to talk about her various treatments and how she has made her decisions have been an inspiration to many struggling with similar issues.
