How 1 Woman Defied Her 6 Month Death-Sentence!
In 2010, Laura Bacon-Smith was given some heartbreaking news that no one ever wants to hear. The doctors had found a rare form of cancer in her liver, blood, lungs, and soft tissue.
They rushed chemotherapy on her, hoping to prolong the days of her life. However, everything seemed grim when the chemotherapy wasn’t doing enough for her. They gave her 6 months to live.
The crazy part of this story? That was 5 years ago!
“I kept trying to stay as optimistic as I could, and I was staying positive for longer and longer as time went on. I was told to just live my life for the remaining six months I had left, and that’s what I’m still doing five years later.” – Laura
Not knowing when her time would come, Laura decided to make a bucket list and live life to it’s fullest potential! The one thing on her list was one that she was specifically told would never happen – to have a baby.
The chemotherapy that she underwent was supposed to render pregnancy impossible, as it was believe to sterilize women. However, when Laura found out she was pregnant, neither her nor the doctors could believe it.
The one thing on her list that she thought was completely impossible became a reality!
“This baby was obviously meant to be. He or she is my little miracle and I plan to treasure every moment. I have to pinch myself sometimes… I still can’t believe it, I feel so lucky to be alive and make the most of every day now.”
Laura’s condition is still terminal. But like she has proven time and time again, she won’t let anything get in the way of living her life the way it was meant to be: full of happiness.
