Ashley Caughey and partner Jonathan
A young pregnant American woman has shown incredible courage in the face of pain and adversity by continuing with her pregnancy and eventually giving birth to her baby daughter, despite being diagnosed with cancer. For many, the potential for chemotherapy causing damage to the child would be enough for them to abort, but Ashley Caughey had different ideas. Indeed Ashley decided that, rather than risk damage to her baby, she would delay cancer treatment until the baby was born.
Ashley says: ‘It wasn’t a choice to me. It was like this is what needs to be done. She’s first. I’m not going to kill a healthy baby because I’m sick. There’s nothing wrong with her. Her life is just as important as mine if not more important. I mean as a mother my job is to protect my kids.’
