Pregnant and on chemotherapy, with Betsy Henson

Can you imagine being 20 weeks pregnant and being told you must start chemotherapy immediately? This happened to Betsy Henson. Betsy began feeling extremely weak. After several visits to the emergency room, for what she thought were severe hemorrhoids, her doctor ordered a colonoscopy.

Her worst fears were realized when it was discovered she had colon cancer that had metastasized  to her liver. Her team of doctors at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) got right to work putting together a treatment plan to treat Betsy’s cancer as well as safeguard her baby.
