Wow what a truly lucky and brave lady, I am so glad that she has two beautiful children and her health. Unborn twins save cancer mum http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/story/0,25197,23168960-12377,00.html By staff writers | February 06, 2008 A WOMAN has avoided a deadly battle with cervical cancer after her unborn twins kicked the tumour so much it dislodged. London woman Michelle Stepney was pregnant with the twins when doctors discovered that she had cervical cancer after she was admitted to hospital for a possible miscarriage, the BBC has reported. The broadcaster reported that after refusing to undergo the recommended chemotherapy and hysterectomy which would have ended her pregnancy doctors at the Royal Marsden Hospital told Mrs Stepney that the tumour had dislodged. I couldnt believe it when the doctors told me that the babies had dislodged the tumour, Mrs Stepney said. Id felt the kicking but I didnt realise just how important their kicking would turn out to be. Despite having the tumour kicked off, the proud mother underwent limited chemotherapy during the pregnancy. Four weeks after the birth of her twins, the proud mother had a hysterectomy before receiving the all-clear from doctors. I owe my life to my girls, and thats why I could have never agreed with the termination. Mrs Stepney has since been nominated for a Woman of Courage Award by Cancer Research UK.
