Back when I was in Catholic school, I remember looking up to the “cool” girls–the ones who made our pleated, plaid kilt uniform look good, the ones who got started the trends, who got their ears double-pierced before anyone else.
And one of those girls I looked up to and admired was Amy LeBlanc Wilson.
But I never expected to admire her for a completely different reason than my silly schoolgirl aspirations. And I certainly didn’t expect to admire her for battling a vicious brain tumor, defying the odds of doctors who told her she would never have children, and watching her become an incredible young mother of five at the age of 29.
Amy’s story is simply amazing and she is a living tribute of faith, hope, and the power of a mother’s love.
“I knew I had a little precious baby inside and I wanted this little miracle to have a chance of life,” Amy explains. “I was willing to put mine aside to be able to let this little baby grow, and if that meant stop[ing] all chemo and other drugs then I knew I had to stay positive, but I was afraid to get my hopes up.”
