My name is Ashleigh. I’m 23 years old, and recently graduated from college. In September of 2019, I was diagnosed with a diffuse astrocytoma, and was told I would need radiation and chemotherapy. Before starting my radiation, my oncologist suggested a meet with a fertility specialist, because the chemo would put me at risk for infertility at an early age. After speaking with a specialist, I realized that fertility treatment was the only way to be sure I was able to have a family in the future,. I decided to go through with freezing my eggs. Team Maggie helped me by providing financial support for the procedure, as well as encouragement before starting the process. On January 2, 2020, I had my eggs retrieved and can go into chemo treatment with a lot less stress. Team Maggie definitely made an impact in my journey and I am so grateful!
