Meet Vicky Veness. The 30-year-old looks healthy on the outside and had no trouble carrying out her daily tasks even at her physically demanding job.
The Cheltenham, UK resident works as a personal trainer and has always taken great care of her body. She eats healthy, exercises regularly and does not smoke.
So you can imagine her shock when doctors diagnosed her with Stage 4 lung cancer just hours after the selfie photo was taken. Since most of Vicky's symptoms were hidden, she didn't notice that her health was declining.
Although Vicky is still trying to process the scary news, she is using it to educate the public about the sneakiness of illnesses like cancer and remind them at just because you look healthy doesn't necessarily mean you are.
She shared her post addressing this topic on her Facebook page and it is already going viral.
