Imagine
 
star
ng
 
the
 
holidays
 
learning
 
you
 
are
 
pregnant,then
 
being
 
diagnosed
 
with
 
an
 
aggressive
 
breast
 
cancer
 
dayslater.
 
That
 
was
 
the
 
predicament
 
I
 
found
 
myself 
 
in
 
lastNovember.
 
Days
 
a
er
 
receiving
 
my
 
devasta
ng
 
diagnosis
 
andwith
 
a
 
whirlwind
 
of 
 
emo
ons,
 
I
 
met
 
Dr.
 
Robyn
 
Young
 
at
 
TheCenter.
 
While
 
my
 
ob/gyn
 
advised
 
that
 
I
 
wait
 
un
l
 
mee
ng
 
withDr.
 
Young
 
to
 
determine
 
the
 
best
 
plan
 
of 
 
ac
on,
 
I
 
had
 
alreadymade
 
up
 
my
 
mind
 
that
 
I
 
would
 
be
 
gh
ng
 
my
 
ba
le
 
for
 
two.
 
Dr.
 
Young's
 
knowledgeandexper
se
 
gave
 
me
 
thecon
dence
 
I
 
needed
 
toproceed
 
with
 
treatmentwhile
 
pregnant,
 
whichwould
 
include
 
amastectomy
 
andchemotherapy.
 
Coping
 
with
 
breastcancer
 
while
 
pregnantwas
 
never
 
easy,
 
as
 
therewas
 
absolutely
 
nothingany
 
physician
 
could
 
tellme
 
that
 
wouldcompletely
 
alleviate
 
allmy
 
fears.
 
However,
 
Dr.
 
Young,Helena
 
Iannaccone,
 
andall
 
of 
 
The
 
Center's
 
sta
ff 
always
 
did
 
their
 
best
 
tomake
 
me
 
feel
 
comfortable
 
and
 
at
 
ease
 
while
 
receivingtreatment.
 
During
 
my
 
ba
le,
 
my
 
family
 
and
 
friends
 
helped
 
me,upli
ed
 
me
 
and
 
even
 
raised
 
funds
 
for
 
my
 
medical
 
expenses.But
 
it
 
was
 
fellow
 
survivors
 
that
 
gave
 
me
 
hope.
 
Another
 
Centersurvivor
 
that
 
I
 
met
 
through
 
a
 
Look
 
Good,
 
Feel
 
Be
er
 
classwould
 
ul
mately
 
give
 
me
 
the
 
best
 
advice
 
on
 
my
 
 journey."Remember,
 
a
tude
 
is
 
everything,"
 
Dora
 
told
 
me.
 
I
 
watchedas
 
she
 
completed
 
her
 
treatment
 
with
 
such
 
a
 
posi
ve
 
outlook,knowing
 
that
 
would
 
soon
 
be
 
me
 
too.
 
On
 
the
 
day
 
I
 
was
 
scheduled
 
to
 
receive
 
my
 
nal
 
chemotreatment,
 
I
 
instead
 
gave
 
birth
 
to
 
my
 
daughter.
 
Born
 
six
 
weekspremature,
 
but
 
perfectly
 
healthy,
 
my
ny
 
miracle
 
had
 
arrivedand
 
I
 
nally
 
had
 
serenity.
 
Thus,
 
her
 
name
 
would
 
be
 
SerenityMilagros
 
(Milagros
 
meaning
 
miracles
 
in
 
Spanish).
 
Unlike
 
me,who
 
by
 
this
me
 
was
 
completely
 
bald,
 
Serenity
 
was
 
born
 
witha
 
full
 
head
 
of 
 
hair.
 
Five
 
days
 
a
er
 
delivery,
 
Serenity
 
and
 
I
 
wereboth
 
able
 
to
 
go
 
home.
 
Last
 
year
 
the
 
holidays
 
were
 
a
 
challenge,
 
but
 
I
 
am
 
sograteful
 
that
 
I
 
received
 
treatment
 
at
 
The
 
Center,
 
a
 
placewhere
 
I
 
found
 
compassion,
 
but
 
most
 
of 
 
all,
 
where
 
I
 
foundhope.
