Ep. 82 Chemo During Pregnancy? Sangela Martins Shares How She Overcome Ovarian Cancer WHILE PREGNANT!

We are SUPER blessed to have Sangela Martins, mama of 2, wife, and ovarian cancer survivor on HMCP today! Sangela’s story is unique because when she was pregnant with her second kiddo, she was diagnosed with ovarian cancer after doctors spotted a cyst on her ovary at her 14-week pregnancy scan. She and her daughter fought through it and now she has a beautiful baby and is cancer-free! We are SO happy for her! Sangela uses her platform to spread awareness about ovarian cancer and we hope that it helps any ladies right now that are fighting a similar battle!
 
Before we bring Sangie on, Doug and Jamie talk about the option of name changes, their recent trip back to Jamie’s hometown (the family got to meet Hendrix!!), the struggles during Jamie’s childhood, and the passing away of Jamie’s step-dad. Jamie shares about how proud she is of her siblings breaking the cycle!
 
Doug and Jamie also chat about the new season of MAFS and share who their favorite couple is!
