    When I first heard this I was so upset that this could happen. Mimi is so brave. I can’t believe the doctors did not better educate her or other patients when cancer is involved. I hope all is okay with her now.

  2. Jennifer says:

    This is so sad. I can’t believe the courts did not help her. It has got to be hard enough to go thru cancer.

  3. Candice says:

    I am sad to learn this can happen to someone after they made embryos together. You would think the courts would have been on her side. Cancer is so tragic enough but to not be able to have a child after that was the intent for creating the embryos is unthinkable.
