It is reported that stomach cancer caused the death of their mother and sister. After that, the relatives went for an examination and found out that they were at risk.
Doctors suggested they remove their stomachs. Sophia and her brothers underwent surgery well, now they feel fine. According to the girl, she can still eat whatever she wants. True, there is one caveat – a lack of vitamins, but in comparison with cancer this is not such a big problem.
