Chantel was born 1st May 2000! I was booked for a c-section on May 5 as the doc was sure I wouldn’t go into labour sooner! Chantel was a breech baby and after 2 previous c-sections it was considered best to do a repeat section.
Around mid afternoon on 1st May my waters broke! A quick trip to hospital and they prepped me for an emergency section.
To cut a long story short … when the opened me up they found a large mass which later tested positive for cancer!
Two weeks later I was in having Chemo! It was a huge roller coaster ride! After round three of chemo and a diet change I declared myself cancer free!! Well I stopped chemo! Continued testing for about a year with no signs of the disease! Praise God!!
We are so thrilled to have Chantel in our family! She is a delight with her sense of humour and sensitive heart. When she was born the doctor said it was “remarkable that she was well”!! She sure is one remarkable girl!
