In a stunning act of devotion to her baby, she chose to delay treatment until she knew the baby was strong enough to live outside the womb. A recent Los Angeles Times essay recounts her harrowing tale. Doctors told the mother, a young Indian woman in her 20s, that if she didn't treat the aggressive tumor immediately, she Continue Reading
