two-time breast cancer survivor
I got my second diagnosis at 31 after I’d been cancer free for five years. I’d been thinking about having a baby, and the news my treatment could complicate that was devastating. At the time, everything was a whirlwind. The last thing I wanted to worry about or research was fertility treatment.
LIVESTRONG made it financially possible for my husband and me to freeze embryos. While I was going through treatment, my sister-in-law, Lisa, volunteered to be our surrogate. We were afraid having a baby was never going to happen. LIVESTRONG made the impossible possible.
