Photographer Kate Murray caught this moment of a mother, suffering from breast cancer, at the time when she held and breastfed her baby for the 1st time.
The mom was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer halfway through pregnancy. Her right breast was removed and she underwent chemo while carrying her miracle baby. She was induced at 36 weeks in order to receive more treatment. The miracle baby was born healthy and happy, and the mommy is out of danger!
Breastfeeding is an essential act of motherhood and a must for every new-born. This mom wanted to experience breastfeeding for a moment, though it is not safe to feed if the mother is diagnosed with breast cancer. The photographer, quickly, caught this moment in her camera.
