I have a friend who I have know since I was about 8. She struggled to conceive and finally did at 36. She had a fibroid that caused major issues the entire pregnancy. Tons of bleeding, dilated to a ten for weeks, and tons of pain. Baby Lukas finally delivered at 29 and 6 and for all intents and purposes is doing beautifully. He is getting close to 4 pounds now and has been weaned from his c-pap.
The devastating news came today.....my friend went to surgery to have the fibroid removed and they discovered that this "fibroid" was in fact cancer. Her oncologist said that this is a very rare form or extremely aggressive cancer and essentially issued her a death sentence. He said he has never seen anyone survive it. I am sick, sick, sick, but I am praying for her healing. I don't know how you all believe, but I believe my God is bigger than cancer and that my friend is going to receive a miracle. Regardless, I am so sad she is dealing with this struggle. She starts chemo next week.....
Oh my, Ash. What a heartbreaking story. While it's wonderful that Lukas is doing well, I'm so sorry to hear of your friends prognosis. I had a very dear friend lose her battle with an aggressive form of leukemia a few years ago. I will say every prayer I can for your friend and her family. Big hugs!
That is so heartbreaking. I could not imagine what it is like to hear that kind of news. I will be sending lots of prayers her way! I pray between God and the amazing medical science that they can fight this.
