“My wife was diagnosed with cancer at 7 months pregnant, started Chemo 7 weeks ago & gave birth to a healthy baby boy early this morning!”


She is more beautiful than ever.

Instantly you start thinking, what does this mean for our future? Does this mean we’re going to have to choose between her or the baby?

That’s the first thought: Well, are we going to be able to keep this baby?

Are we going to be able to keep [Sarah]? Are we going to have to make that choice and say, no we want to keep this baby and let [Sarah] have a lesser chance of survival?

It sounds like a cliché, but there’s nothing you can do to prepare yourself for that. You think it’s something that would never happen to you. It’s just something that happens to people in general. But it doesn’t work that way.”

We debated a lot about starting chemo before the baby was born. Out of all of the doctors we talked to, and we talked to quite a few, none of them had any serious concerns that it would affect the baby, so we just kind of had to choose to trust.” – Ben Hanan
