Cobie Smulders reveals all about her battle with ovarian cancer

May 4, 2015 Cobie Smulders

Superheroine indeed! Cobie Smulders' superhero mashup Avengers is hitting all the sweet spots in the box office and the actress is a true hero even in her real life.

The How I Met Your Mother actress revealed to Women's Health that she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer when she was 25 during the filming of the season 3 of the comedy series.

Talking about how she spent the next two years secretly fighting a battle for her health, the actress said, ""I had tumors on both ovaries and the cancer had spread into my lymph nodes and surrounding tissues." After several surgeries, the cancerous tissue was finally removed.

The actress though has become stronger with her battle and hopes she could spread awareness among other women by opening up about it.

The actress is now happily married and a mom. In fact, she shot the Women's Health cover just two months after delivering her baby.

"I don't think I'll ever feel like I'm cancer-free," the actress said of her recovery. "Now that I'm five years out, I'm trying to think of it as a positive thing and what can I learn from it. And if I can create more awareness, I'll do it."
