Explaining how she was first diagnosed, Shaw said in a YouTube video, where she had previously vlogged about fitness, that she started having stomach aches and a bump formed just below her bellybutton. Her periods had stopped, and she was vomiting.
At first, her doctors in Florida told her it was just a cyst. After a few months she started getting sharp pains, so she went back to the doctor and was given an ultrasound, and then an MRI. If this wasn't stressful enough, she actually had plans to get married in a months’ time.
