Cervical Cancer Surgery Can Protect Fertility
Neddy Franco and her fiancé were full of hopes and dreams about the babies they would have after they married. But the day she was diagnosed with cervical cancer, she was told she needed a radical hysterectomy, which would make her unable to conceive a third time.
