Please pray for Female bodybuilder Cheyann Clark fighting cancer, as she inspires millions.
A female body builder in Washington State is showing her strength in the face of cancer. The young woman wants to show others how to take on the disease.
Cheyann Clark wanted to inspire, so she posted pictures of her in the gym when she got into the best shape of her life. “It’s the most amazing feeling,” she says of being fit.
She started her fitness Instagram page. She had a pretty good following. But her page blew up when she posted a picture of what cancer and its treatments had done to her body. “Oh my gosh, it’s insane. I’m almost at 200k followers… I’m used to looking in the mirror and seeing muscle and all my hard work… and it disappeared literally overnight.”
Four months ago, Cheyann was diagnosed with a rare form of ovarian cancer. She’s had multiple surgeries and chemotherapy. “It’s still hard. but um, sorry (wipes tears away). I just have a really good support system but finding out I have cancer was pretty hard,” says Cheyann.
Cancer was hard on her emotionally and hard on her body. She lost 28 pounds. She lost her hair. But she didn’t lose her spirit. “I could either let this rule my life and take over and die. Or I could put my gloves on, face it and get in the ring and kick its butt. And that’s what I decided to do.”
Cheyann’s revealing selfies went from lean muscle – to skin and bones and a surgery scar. She still uses her Instagram page to inspire, but she hope you see what she sees when she looks in the mirror now. “I see a warrior and somebody who’s ready to battle,” she says. “Everybody’s beautiful, no matter what their body looks like.”
