The well-known US presenter and YouTuber Grace Helbig has disclosed that she has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
The 37-year-old said in a video that she spoke to her doctor hesitantly after noticing a small lump and received her "shocking" and "surreal" diagnosis about a month ago.
She added that it was "extremely treatable and highly beatable," though.
While advising other women to look out for any potential symptoms, she vowed to "take on" the illness.
She advised her followers to have those lumps examined. And don't be afraid to ask the doctor a question you believe is foolish. ".
With more than two million subscribers, the internet personality gained notoriety in the early days of YouTube and is well-known for her humorous vlogs and trending challenges.
She claimed that she had struggled with how to express her worries to her gynecologist because she was worried about coming across as "a stupid little girl who didn't know how girl bodies worked.".
She continued, "Thank God I listened to that little voice inside of me that finally mustered the courage to bring it up to her because she too thought it was abnormal.
Helbig and Mamrie Hart co-founded the podcast This Might Get Weird before she launched her own comedy talk show, The Grace Helbig Show, on the E! Network in 2015.
She has been Cindy Bear's voice in the HBO animated series Jellystone since 2021.
She stated that six rounds of chemotherapy are currently part of her treatment plan, followed by hormonal therapy.
