While visiting her obstetrician in May 2012, 30-year-old Meghan Martin received life-changing news. The mother of two, who was seven-months pregnant with her third boy, learned she had breast cancer.
“My first thoughts were: Will this baby live? Will I Live? Who is going to read bedtime stores?” Martin says.
A day later, Martin began planning her treatment with the Program for Young Women with Breast Cancer at the Susan F. Smith Center for Women’s Cancers at Dana-Farber. She had four doses of chemotherapy before giving birth to her “miracle baby,” Gavin. Martin continued her treatment a short while after Gavin arrived, all while maintaining her role as a mother to her newborn, 2-year-old and 4-year-old boys.
Martin recently spoke about her experience at the Susan F. Smith Center Executive Council Breakfast. Hear her story in the video below:
