Businesswoman and author Genevieve Everell, known at home as Miss Sushi, announced Thursday that she was diagnosed with breast cancer while nearly 35 weeks pregnant.
She announced this in a touching post on Instagram.
We can see Geneviève and her partner Nicholas Lavoie laughing during a photo shoot to immortalize the pregnancy. Little did the couple know that a mass had lodged itself in one of the woman's breasts.
“Today I am 34.5 weeks pregnant. A few weeks ago I felt a small lump in my left breast. I wasn't worried. I said to myself: It's probably the mammary glands, the milk, the hormones. You know, I’m pregnant: zero stress!”

Then, a few weeks later, the mass grew. Geneviève therefore spoke to her doctor about it.
“She didn’t like what she touched, so she repeated it forcefully. Today I had my biopsy done at CHUM to find out more about what is in my body: a cancerous tumor and affected lymph nodes! The results to know the stadium will follow in the coming days (the endless wait).”
Several personalities sent their support to the 37-year-old as part of the publication, including Bianca Longpré, Nathalie Simard and Jessika Barker.
