No two are the same: a pregnancy & cancer story

Pregnancy is full of surprises. But cancer isn’t usually one of them. If every woman has a unique tale to tell when expecting a baby, Matilda Tristram has two: one about her growing child and one about the tumor that doctors discovered, didn’t expect to be cancerous, and then when it was, were unsure which course of action to take.

This is a woman who’s courageous enough to share her hopes and fears, and even draw a cartoon strip about her experiences.

And Matilda’s story continues… now that she’s a new mom! What’s your story about being pregnant and having cancer (or treating a pregnant woman)?
