As devastating as it was to find out at age 31 that I have breast cancer and I will be losing my breasts, it was as equally devastating to hear that I am at risk of losing my fertility as a result of chemotherapy.
I absolutely adore my nephews and have worked so hard to become ready for children of my own. With everything that I have to give up for my overall health and well-being, I feel like I am also giving up what makes me a woman and potentially losing the opportunity to start a family. If it wasn't for a foundation such as Team Maggie, I wouldn't have the opportunity to preserve my fertility. Thank you Team Maggie for giving me the opportunity to have a family!
