cancer sucks

‘7 months pregnant, I noticed a bump on my leg. I thought it was just me being ‘fat.’ I could kick myself now.’: Mom diagnosed with Stage 4 Sarcoma, claims ‘cancer has been my greatest blessing’

“Weeks later, my leg started randomly spazzing. My veins popped out and I could no longer walk. When I went to the doctor, I was told, ‘I’m sorry, but it’s cancer.’ Just like in the movies, my ears rang. I didn’t hear anything. I was in the midst of struggling to lose my baby weight, and now I had EFFING CANCER?! I was mad, like dropping the F-bomb 100 times in an hour mad. Like, swearing while I saying prayers mad.”

‘There I was, 17 and 34 weeks pregnant, learning my daughter had a huge tumor in her brain and was going to die.’: Teen pregnant with daughter receives terminal brain cancer diagnosis days before delivery

“I had no time to digest this news, no time to research, no time to prepare. I went into early labor and delivered my daughter days later. More doctors, more scans, more blood work, all to be told my week-old daughter had stage III brain cancer. Terminal. ‘You can expect her to die soon.’ What was supposed to be the happiest few days of my life were the most painful and traumatic moments I’ll ever experience.”
