From Fox News:
A California mother who was diagnosed with a rare type of breast cancer during her pregnancy has given birth to her miracle baby that survived the several rounds of chemotherapy she needed to stop the disease from spreading.
Jade Devis, 36, said it started with a hard lump that was allegedly dismissed by a radiologist as a pregnancy symptom, according to Loma Linda University Health (LLUH). She pushed for a biopsy, which revealed stage 2 triple-negative breast cancer. About 10-20 percent of cancers are triple-negative breast cancers, which means that the growth of the cancer is not fueled by the hormones estrogen and progesterone, or by the HER2 protein, so it will not respond to hormonal therapy medicines or those that target HER2 protein receptions, according to BreastCancer.org.
“My baby boy is my miracle child,” Devis, who will finish her final treatments at the end of November, told LLUH. “It is surreal to remember that my pregnancy had an element of extraordinary fear. I am blessed when I look at my son, and I cannot ask for more than that.”
