When Cancer & Pregnancy Collide
Photo: Minnie and Paul Narth
Minnie Narth never expected her son's baptismal picture to turn out quite like this -- with a hospital garden as a backdrop and a bandana covering her head.
Yet here she was with her husband, Paul Narth, and newborn, Kieron, trying to count blessings between rounds of cancer treatment.
Blessing No. 1: Minnie's oncology team seemed hopeful she would eventually make a complete recovery.
No. 2: Despite the lymphoma, Minnie -- at 37 -- finally had the family she always wanted.
And No. 3, perhaps the biggest blessing of all: Tests showed Kieron was completely healthy despite the rounds of chemotherapy his mother received while he was still in the womb.
