BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — A local woman is pregnant, and what should be a happy time for the family, is shadowed by the fact that she also is battling cancer.

Sarah, just 26 years old, found out a few months ago that she has stage 2 breast cancer. It was discovered right around the time she learned about her pregnancy. The baby is a boy, and the third child for the family. Right now she doing chemotherapy. Once the baby arrives, she will go through radiation treatment.

A local organization called, Be A Blessing Birmingham, has started a virtual baby registry to help the mother-to-be with baby essentials. Doctors will be inducing Sarah on Dec. 9th, so the organization is trying to get as much stuff as possible ahead of the due date.
