Ashley Bridges was ten weeks pregnant when she was told that she had bone cancer. Her doctors advised her to start chemotherapy immediately, which meant she would have to abort her unborn baby.
The Wildomar, California, mom refused the cancer treatment.
“There’s no way I could kill a healthy baby because I’m sick,” Bridges told CBS Los Angeles (video below).
When Bridges was eight months pregnant, doctors told her the cancer had spread and she had to give birth, which she did.
“That’s basically when they told me that it was terminal,” recalled Bridges.
