I can not even begin to imagine what Heidi Loughlin at the young age of 32 felt like when she discovered she had a rare and aggressive form of breast cancer after becoming pregnant with her third child (Heidi will have 3 children under the age of three)!
Heidi was diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer after noticing a rash on her breast while breastfeeding her baby son Tait. Typically the doctor will give you two to five years to live.
All the Doctors she went to gave her the option of terminating the pregnancy so she could begin aggressive chemotherapy.
But she ultimately decided to keep her baby and begin a less aggressive form of chemotherapy treatment so Tait and her other son Noah, aged two, would not lose their mother.
After her initial treatment failed the doctors recommended that she starts intensive chemotherapy which could save her life but put her unborn baby’s health at risk.
Ms Louglin, who is a police officer then decided that her only chance of survival is to give birth 12 weeks early.
