Cancer survivor scheduled for hysterectomy finds out she's pregnant

Kasandra Hegwood is pregnant!

I featured the 31-year-old breast cancer fighter in a series on survivorship last September. She wrote yesterday with the good news. It's all a little crazy...

Kasandra was scheduled to have a full hysterectomy late last month. That got postponed after her oncologist discovered the baby (Yes - her oncologist is who first figured it out).

Kasandra already has three children – 8-year-old Justice, 4-year-old Jaydon and 3-year-old Jordan – but doctors told her she'd likely never be pregnant again. Her cancer treatments had just been too intense.

She calls it a miracle child.

If you can’t place Kasandra… she was going through difficult chemo and radiation when she signed up last year for Komen Charlotte’s Race for the Cure. She was super pumped. So excited, in fact, that when weather canceled the Race, she went uptown anyway to walk the rain-drenched route and celebrate herself.

I posted multiple pictures of her that morning. She was awesome.

It seems only fitting this determined momma kicks breast cancer’s tail, and is rewarded with the greatest gift in the world.

Congrats, Kasandra!
