This mum faced her worst fears ….
Erin was 13 weeks pregnant with her second child when she woke up with a swollen armpit.
Convinced it was some kind of infection, she and her husband Sean made a doctor’s appointment.
After an ultrasound and biopsy, Erin, Sean and their young family were shocked to learn she had breast cancer. Worst of all, it was triple negative and very hard to treat.
Erin wept at the news. She was gripped by fear. Would her baby survive? What about her little girl, Laila? Would Erin be around to see more birthdays?
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in Australian Women. Which is why Cancer Council has made it a priority for research.
