Brain Cancer Can’t Stop Babies

Brain Cancer Can’t Stop Babies

“Several months ago we found out my husbands brain tumor had grown back.. a fear we’ve been living with for the past 5 years since he was diagnosed with a grade 2 astrocytoma. Doctors then proceeded to tell us that treatment would include another surgery followed by chemo and radiation – nearly diminishing our chances of ever having another baby naturally. It was then we decided that cancer wouldn’t control us and began trying, hoping that with a little bit of time we could potentially fall pregnant. When it didn’t happen the first month, I felt down. When it didn’t happen the second month my spirits became a bit broken – I started to realize that our dream of having two kids may not play out exactly how we wanted. Soon enough Christmas passed and I began feeling tired. No matter how hard I tried I couldn’t break it. Then came my favorite, vomiting all day. Sure enough I took a pregnancy test and it was positive. When I told Jacob tears rolled down his face. Despite all the bad news we’d received we knew that bringing a new life into this world was the greatest gift. As I write this we prepare for another brain surgery in 2 weeks. I’m scared for what’s to come but we’ll never let this cancer control our lives. I love my husband more than words, more than life. This little rainbow girl gives us such hope 🌈🎀”
