Podcast – Marci Houff – Ovarian Cancer Survivor

In this interview, ovarian cancer survivor Marci Houff and I discuss her surprising ovarian cancer diagnosis at a young age, the facts surrounding this sneaky and deadly disease, the steps she took to battle this cancer, the disease’s symptoms, and the non-profit she founded to spread information and awareness.

The following episode was originally recorded for Mom’s Don’t Have Time to Move and Shake, a Zcast production. Thank you to Zibby Owens for the guest host opportunity.

Episode’s Show Notes

Ovarian Cancer Symptoms:

  • Bloating that is persistent
  • Eating less, feeling fuller
  • Abdominal and/or back pain
  • Trouble with bladder and bowels

In 2013, Marci founded Chic Awearness

After her experience, Marci moved to Nashville and discovered many women don’t know much about this dreaded disease. And she wanted to educate them. Physicians stepped in to support the group, and a handful of girlfriends—many of them ovarian cancer survivors—pulled off a fundraising event.
