The New York Times Magazine ran an interesting article today about pregnant women with breast cancer. It appears that chemo may not be as verboten as once thought to treat pregnant women.
It's not the first I've heard about this. A recent article in The Oregonian profiled a pregnant woman who's going through chemo. And a friend of a friend, who also lives in Oregon, is doing it, too.
I identify with some of what these women go through: I was pregnant when I was first diagnosed with cancer. And I know what chemo is like. But I didn't have to do them at the same time. I can't imagine having had to go through that. Reading the stories of these brave women puts me in awe.
