So excited to announce the second Team Maggie Baby is on it's way! Katie is 16 weeks pregnant and did not have to use her frozen eggs.  This is one tough lady.  After a cancer diagnosis in March 2017 and a grueling fight to ward off cancer she fought back to wellness and competed in a triathlon.    

You see chemo can cause infertility but how soon after treatment is not always know.  Infertility could be immediately, or 1 year...

Earlier this year, I heard a voice tell me to get the BRCA Gene Mutation test. A test that I had never gotten. My Aunt, who tested positive, was diagnosed and survived breast cancer 15 years ago. Since then, many family members have also tested positive. Maybe it is because I have always felt healthy, and honestly I didn't understand how high the risks are for developing breast and/or ovarian cancer with this mutation. So I listened to that voice, had the bloo...

Today as we count each day down to the 5 year cancer free mark I look back over some awesome memories of love and support our family received.  There is no way to mention all the support we received and for each member of our family we all talk about different incidents of love and support and how much everyone of them have affected our life's even today.  You see that's the cool think about cancer, you find out you are loved and supported through life, people...

We have an applicant right now that needs our help.  She is only 24 and engaged to be married.  Her and her husband to be have talked about how many children they wanted to have when she was diagnosed with cancer.  She has been working hard on her master's degree and they are living on one income while she is in school.  Her cancer diagnosis was devastating of itself but the thought of the treatment taking away her ability to have children was even more devast...

My name is Gemma and I am 30 years old. I live in Mattoon, IL and work for the United States Postal Service as a Letter Carrier. I love my job and I love the people I work with and meet while I walk various city routes. Last year though my customers noticed that I started to walk various city routes. Last year though my customers noticed that I started to walk with a limp. I thought that I had just pulled a muscle but In late February 2017 a tumor was discover...

In February of 2017 I was diagnosed with Acute Promgelocytic Leukemia (APL). I was 11 weeks pregnant and lost the baby as a result of my treatment. I have always felt that being diagnosed with leukemia is something I could deal with and fight and win. The thought of losing our baby that we have wanted and planned for at the same time was a whole different story. It has been the hardest card we have been dealt, harder than cancer.., its the thing that keeps me...

Cancer is a scary word and being diagnosed with cancer will immediately change your life.  Until I was diagnosed, I had no idea just how invasive cancer could be. 

Up until 3 months ago, I was healthy and active and my biggest complaints in life were about too much traffic and having an extra 10 (ok, maybe 20) pounds to lose.  My symptoms came out of nowhere and quickly increased in severity.  After suffering through a week of vomiting 2-5x/day the do...

Imagine graduating from College or even high school and having a doctor tell you your test came back positive for cancer.  Let's see what are you doing at that age.  Thinking of what you want to be when you grow up?  Getting butterflies when you go out with your handsome boy friend?  Looking for the next party?  Dreaming of getting married?  How many kids do you want?  Yes that is what most kids are thinking but that ends abruptly when you are diagnosed with c...

"In a world full of darkness be the bright light." I woke up this morning with a heavy heart and reminder that even on your worst mental day it isn't all that bad, and it's better than the alternative. I woke up missing my sweet friend, Amber, and feeling sad for those families who have lost loved ones who gave the ultimate sacrifice fighting for our freedom. I am forever thankful. If I have learned anything from my life obstacles, it's to never take people fo...

When I was diagnosed with Double Hit Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma at 24 I researched everything so I was prepared for what was going to happen.  This gave me a list of questions to ask the doctor before I agreed to treatment.  When I learned the side effects of chemotherapy would affect fertility I was adamant to go through fertility treatment first before I started chemo.  I would advise every one not to be afraid to ask a million questions until you feel complete...
