Michelle Whitlock says she never thought she would be "that girl", the one with cervical cancer.
She got the news at a time when her career was taking off and she had just found the love of her life.
She was only 26 years old.
Now Michelle opens up about her deeply personal struggle in her new memoir "How I Lost my Uterus and Found my Voice".
She says it's full of health care tips, for her girlfriends.
