But she was told by doctors that the chances that she and her husband Max could conceive were slim. In 2010, doctors diagnosed Joice with cancer after locating a malignant tumor. After treatment, she went into remission and was declared cancer-free for three years. Last summer, after being told that she and her husband may never have children due to the cancer treatment, Joice found out that she was pregnant. However, a month later, the Joices also discovered that the cancer had returned. Doctors removed the tumor on her lung, but were unaware of whether the cancer had spread in the months that passed without a full MRI. But the MRI could mean terminating the life of the baby. Joice knew she had to save her baby’s life even if it meant losing her own. “Having a kid was one of the most important things in the world to her,” her husband Max told the New York Post. “She said, ‘If we terminate the pregnancy and it turns out I can’t have a baby [later], I’ll be devastated.’ She knew this might be her only chance.” Joice delayed any further treatments until the baby could be born. Although the child was to be born last month, doctors took the baby early, performing a Cesarean Section in January. Joice gave birth to a girl, whom she named Lily. More
