Rocío: “You shouldn’t see cancer as the end of something, but as the beginning of another opportunity to overcome any adversity”
Today we bring you a new, true testimony to our blog. This is the story of Rocío, a brave and courageous woman who knew how to see further after a diagnosing of breast cancer.
Rocío is the first woman in Malaga who has managed to become a mother after overcoming cancer.
She came to our fertility clinic in Malaga to freeze her eggs in 2010, before undergoing surgery and a chemotherapy treatment. She was 37 years old.
Seven years later, being 44 and once the breast tumour had been overcome, she made her dream of becoming a mother come true after a fructifying in vitro fertilization (IVF) treatment with her frozen ovules.
We wanted to record the story of Rocío and some colleagues involved in her case, because of the great value her testimony gives us. We think it is worth seeing and listening to it.
We always hope and work very hard so all the stories of the patients of our fertility clinic have an ending as happy as that of Rocío and her little one.
