Ovarian Cancer Survivor
Ussy - Actress, Presenter and Commercial Star
Born on July 13, 1980, this young girl is an actress and commercial star at the same time. She already starred sixteen films and three commercials for her looks. When she felt some pain during her period, she started to sense a strange thing in her cervix. Having been examined, some endovestrosen, a growing tissue that normally arises during the menstruation and is a potential cancer, was detected. She was shocked by this result as the doctor told her. “I got a cancer cell in my uterus,” she sighed about the misfortune.
She then flew to Singapore for a biopsy to verify whether it was there or not. Executed in Mount Elizabeth Hospital, one of the finest in Asia, it showed a 3-cm white gland that, according to the doctor, could grow to be a cancer in the next five to ten years. She was sentenced to have a pre-cancer and the doctor advised a surgery.
Going back to Jakarta with a surgery in queue, someone suddenly told her to try some Papua’s buah merah oil. It occurred at that time that the fruit was the most wanted issue in town. Two weeks ahead of her departure for the surgery, she had had a teaspoon of buah merah oil twice a day.
At the Mount Elizabeth Hospital, to the doctor’s surprise, the white spot of the cancer-to-be had shrunk to only 1-cm long. Ussy told the doctor what she had back in Jakarta. Not knowing what it was, the doctor listened to her A to Z explanation that in Indonesia there was a red fruit (buah = fruit, merah = red) that was very helpful to cure diseases. Nonetheless, she still went through the surgery. The two-week work of buah merah oil reducing the cancer up to 2-cm long was concluded by the Mount Elizabeth Hospital’s doctors.
Until today, in between her films making activities, she keeps consuming buah merah oil. In fact it is not only she that enjoys it, her mom does, too. “For prevention and better health,” she remarked. She believes that it is good for health for its high content of beta-carotene. This knowledge she obtained from a magazine. (plus mag)
