A woman who always dreamed of being a mother was overjoyed when she finally gave birth, but before the birth of the “miracle” baby Lara, British Roxanne Hollamby had a serious health problem that caused 4 miscarriages.
Before giving birth, Roxanne was in turmoil when doctors told her she had choriocarcinoma, a fast-growing form of cancer, writes the British Express.
Chorionic carcinoma is always associated with an abnormal pregnancy, which means that it is difficult to have children.
Roxanne, from West Sussex, said being far from the best thing that ever happened to me was the worst thing ever, referring to having a girl.
The 40-year-old, who had four miscarriages before Lara and suffered from an autoimmune disease for 20 years, says her chronic pain masked the early signs of cancer, so she only sought medical attention after she had serious heart palpitations.
A week after her birthday, Roxanne was in hospital with palpitations and was told she had spiked HCG – a hormone called human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) – and assumed she was pregnant.
HCG instructs the endometrium to stay in place to sustain a pregnancy, rather than shedding as it normally does with a period, but an ultrasound scan revealed no baby and instead her ovaries were “full” of precancerous tumors.
The doctors soon discovered that the mother has cancer not only on the ovaries, but also on the stomach and lungs, and her largest tumor is now 18 cm.
Roxanne explained: “When you have chronic variable disease, I can have a regular stomach ache, but now I can feel a lump.”
A few days after the initial test, doctors warned Roxanne that her cancer was terminal. However, Roxanne wasn’t thinking of herself at this point, saying, “I felt so guilty about leaving my husband, daughter and family.”
The couple describe each other as “soulmates” and describe their first date, Mark says: “This magical moment happened when we went to say goodbye and we hugged and it felt like we were married in that hug.” For Roxanne, she says she didn’t understand the appeal of marriage until she met Mark – and then it became clear.
Mark, with the help of family members, takes care of Lara while Roxanne is in hospital, but they are struggling to survive, and the father said it was like being in a ‘parallel reality’, adding: ‘I don’t really feel like I am.’ life, I’m just trying to balance caring for Lara and supporting Roxanne.”
Fortunately, doctors at Charing Cross Hospital said Roxanne has a good chance of survival, although she has to undergo chemotherapy twice a week for six months.
The length of treatment depends solely on her body’s response to chemotherapy, but there have been concerns about the treatment itself.
Roxanne developed neutropenia, a common but worrying side effect of chemotherapy in which her white blood cell count is low, increasing her risk of infection.
When patients develop neutropenia, treatment should be temporarily discontinued, extending the time the mother is away from Lara.
Through their own research and hard work, Roxanne and Mark find a possible cause of the miscarriage and a cure.
“Roxanne always wanted to be a mother, it was her absolute dream all her life,” said Mark. “Having Lara alive and having Roxanne Lara was a dream come true, but from Lara’s birth to being diagnosed with a rare form of cancer was another nightmare. “
Roxanne added: “Being away from Lara is the hardest thing to deal with. It’s hard to keep the will to live if I don’t see her every day. Once I see her smile, I think I can do it. I’ll find a way to get through it, but then when I’m away from her for more than a day.” I might give up, it’s a big struggle, I can’t be a working mother because I can’t even when I’m at home now, so it was painful.”
Even though Roxanne discovered cancer, she knows that many people with chronic illnesses won’t see a doctor until it’s too late.
She now encourages others to seek advice if anything unusual appears. “If it seems unusual, don’t assume it’s part of your chronic illness, it could be something more deadly,” she advises.
For Roxanne, the perfect gift would be spending time with loved ones.
