When Mary Clancy started filling out, she wasn’t surprised. The 71-year-old from Allentown, Pennsylvania thought she was destined to be "a short round, fat little old lady.” When she reached 365 pounds, despite dieting, she went to the hospital and that’s when doctors discovered a 140-pound tumor.
It turns out Clancy had a cyst in her ovaries that had grown over the years. Luckily, surgeons were able to remove the cancerous, Stage 1 mass in a five-hour operation. When all was said and done, she lost 180-pounds of tumor and tissue.
Clancy has recovered from surgery and is now working on regaining her balance as a much, much thinner woman. In even better news, she’s cancer free.
