Echeverria said she used the powder up to twice a day for four decades, continuing after her 2007 diagnosis of ovarian cancer. She stopped using it in 2016 when she heard about a woman who said she became ill after using the powder and filed suit against Johnson & Johnson, USA Today reported.
Her lawyer said that the company had paperwork that dated back to 1964 that showed that officials knew that there was a risk of ovarian cancer if women used talcum powder for feminine hygiene.
A woman in Virginia was awarded $110.5 million in a similar case earlier this year.
Three other women had been awarded more than $300 million in their cases in the recent past, USA Today reported.
Johnson & Johnson officials said the company will appeal the decision as it has done previously, the BBC reported.
