Aplastic Anemia : A serious blood disorder where the bone marrow doesn't produce enough red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. This can lead to fatigue, increased risk of infection, and bleeding problems.

Cervical Cancer : Cancer of the cervix, the lower part of the uterus. It's often caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) and can be prevented through vaccination and regular screenings.

Metastatic Cancer : Cancer that has spread from its original location in the body to other organs or tissues.
