Hello my name is Tessa and I'm 25 and just had my son Feb 10th. I found out I had breast cancer when I was 18 weeks pregnant and had no idea all the things they could do to fight it when you were pregnant, I found the lump myself got it checked out was told by so many it was just the pregnancy and I was to young for it to be cancer only my obgyn said well I think we should look more into it just to make sure. I found it at a early stage thank god and had surgery to remove the lump when I was about 20 weeks pregnant, and then started chemo shortly after while pregnant and my son is completely healthy happy baby I feel so blessed, he has helped me get through this time. I am still going through chemo will continue for another round and then stay on hercepton for another year or two and eventually start radiation treatment.
