At one point when I lost my hair, my son, then 5, asked if that would hurt the baby. We talked to him and told him no, that she would be fine because we had faith that God was going to take care of our family and our unborn daughter….

I didn’t throw up one time after chemo…. I actually believe my pregnancy hormones helped me with the limited side effects….

If it hadn’t been for my team of doctors and the support of my family and friends, I wouldn’t have made it, and I wouldn’t be sitting here holding my precious baby….

The baby’s name is Isabella Hope Booth because she is the hope that kept us going every day….

She saved my life.
