Her Dog Saved Her Life
Stephanie Herfel received an ovarian cyst diagnosis and was discharged with pain medication by an emergency room doctor. However, her dog, Sierra, exhibited anxious behavior, sniffing her lower belly and hiding, prompting her to seek a second opinion. This led to the discovery of her actual condition: ovarian cancer. Subsequently, Sierra detected Herfel’s cancer two more times, in 2015 and 2016, through sniffing and hiding. Presently, Herfel has overcome cancer and is actively raising funds to support ovarian cancer research.
