    Hi ShannonH sorry to hear about your sister in law. I also have breast cancer but I am not pregnant. My sister and I were browsing through some breast cancer sites, and came up on some books. one of these books were called "Nordies at Noon". Although some parts of the book are sad, there is also a part in it about a lady who was 5 months pregnant and also just diagnosed with breast cancer,she went through chemo, and a masactomy during her pregnancy .She was 27 at the time,and now a 6 year survivor, She had a beautiful healthy baby boy and a little girl 3 years later.

    I just heard that the medical center in Houston is having very good success with treating pregnant women with cancer. I don't know how to contact them, I think it was Methodist Hospital but can't be sure. That medical center is very large but a tight knit community, maybe you can find someone that can direct you. Good luck. It really sounded promising.
