Diagnosed at age 24.

I had just started my first job. I'd just graduated from school and was thinking about all the big questions in life. I had always dreamed of one day being a mother. One thing that never occurred to me was that something like cancer could come out of left field and change my life forever. I was only 24 when I was faced with a decision that nobody should have to make: I had to decide to get a treatment that would save my life, but would leave me unable to have children.
