Simply being pregnant is enough to deal with without adding other health challenges to the mix. But for many women, complications do arise, and in some cases, they can be a scary diagnosis with seriously bad timing -- like breast cancer, which can occur in about one every 3,000 pregnancies. One New York mama named Jamie Isenstein recently battled the disease through her pregnancy. But today, she and her husband, Paul Hogan, are feeling especially thankful. Because despite the diagnosis, Jamie managed to beat the disease ... and have a healthy baby girl!
That's not to say it hasn't been a difficult road. When Jamie was only two months pregnant and first diagnosed with breast cancer, she said she "was a basket case pretty much the whole time. It was nerve-wracking. I was really nervous.” Geeze, can you blame her?!
