College Student with Breast Cancer Didn't Miss a Single Class

Colleen married the boyfriend who supported her

Colleen is now married to her college boyfriend, who was around to support her throughout her cancer treatment. She was really open to her now-husband about the possibility that she may not have kids in the future. She told him he that she would understand if he wanted to end the relationship. But in the end, he didn't want out. He even encouraged her throughout her double mastectomy.

Colleen is now 31 and happily married to her supportive spouse. They hope to start a family and will be discussing taking her off the Tamoxifen, a drug used to suppress any remaining cancer cells from sparking a recurrence. They really want to have kids, but whether or not Colleen will be able to bear children remains unknown.
