Woman told her ovaries were ‘dead’ says new diet helped her fall pregnant

A woman who was told her ovaries were “dead” after battling breast cancer has told how she defied the odds to have a second child.

Gemma Isaacs, 33, claims a vegan diet helped her fall pregnant with her “miracle” baby boy, who was born last year.

The Londoner, already mum to daughter Ella, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2018 when she was only 31 even though she did not have a lump or any other common symptoms.

Gemma underwent radiotherapy and a double mastectomy, and later found out she had the BRCA1 gene mutation, which puts women at greater risk of both breast and ovarian cancer.

Doctors told her that her ovaries were “dead”, and she considered having them removed.

NFL Assists Program That Offers Families Guidance During A Baby’s First 1000 Days

Beyond the Super Bowl game, and the parties and other festivities attached to it, the NFL tries to leave a legacy in the host city by assisting community groups and other non-profits.

One such effort announced by the Tampa Bay Super Bowl LV Host Committee leading up to the game is “The First 1000 Days.”

The Tampa Bay Pilot Program is inspired by the first 1,000 days of a child’s life, which researchers say represents a significant window of development. In that time, a child develops a majority of their brain cells, building a foundation for language development.

The host committee is teaming up with Tampa General Hospital, Advent Health, Healthy Start Coalitions, the Early Learning Coalitions, Florida Blue, PNC Bank and United Way Suncoast to launch this initiative.

This pilot program is one of the “pillars” of the host committee’s Forever 55 legacy program.

It will provide 20 disadvantaged

Fortunately, the doctor reassured her that
