Is There Hope Of Life For Person That Has Leukemia And Also Pregnant?

I have a cousin whom I have once lived with when she had not gotten married, she was so kind to me then and even up to the present and I really like her.

Now she's has gotten married in the last 3years and she is living happily with her husband, but unfortunately, there is no child. Some few months ago, she discovered that she's feeling somehow then she made her way to the Hospital together with her husband for medical check up, on getting to hospital, the Doctor ran a test on her and when the result came out, she discovered that she was pregnant, she was so happy but the happiness does not last long when the Doctor also told her that she has Leukemia that is, Cancer of blood.

The Doctor said it is not save for any patient who has this disease (leukemia) and at the same time pregnant that such person's life is at stake and can lead that to death, the Doctor advised her to flush the pregnancy out in other for her to treat herself from this disease. But unfortunately, my cousin insisted that over the years she has been looking for a child and now that the pregnancy has come she can't flush it out, her husband urge her, implore her to allow the Doctor to flush the pregnancy so that she can take good care of her health, but despite all this, my cousin refused to their advice.

Please I need your advice on what I can do to help my cousin because I don't want to lose her, I really love her so well.

  • I suggest she should flush the pregnancy. Because it will not be good to lose both lives at once. 

    But if the woman insist of getting her baby then the can change a doctor for more ideas on how to get her baby. 

    Prevention is always better than curing and lastly it should involve prayers.

  • There's nothing too hard for God to do because he can do all things even at no time.

    Medically speaking, it is a hard case because the doctors have said and anything can happen.

    God set up the doctors to handle such cases but sometimes they say with finality that any thing above them cannot be resolved elsewhere.

    God still do miracle if we have unshakable trust in him.

    May God help her and see her through.

  • It has been scientifically proven that, the chances of a leukemia patient who is also pregnant of surviving the pregnancy or labor are very slim. Flushing out the pregnancy is what really best for her at this moment but the baby also has the right to live. She will be able to conceive again but abortion is a sin, so I suggest you commit the issue into the hands of God and he will surely let his will take place in the life of your cousin.

  • Wow congratulations to her,  I will advise her to hold on to her faith and I will urge both husband and wife to be prayerful together and believe me her case will be a different one forget about whatever doctor have said concerning her doctor is not God

    God will see you and your baby through you shall not die but live in Jesus name

  • I suggest you pray about this before taking any action, because in a situation like this only God has the way out, but personally there is a saying that said "live to fight another day" God forbids bad thing you she dies what happened the point as she wont be able to take care of the child.

  • Well, the doctor has given her his professional advice

    It's left for her to take it or leave it

    In cases like this you need God to intervene

    Anyway her faith can carry her to do let her do

    Because now only God can save her and the baby...but she shouldn'tjust make this choice out of desperation but out of faith and instructions from God

  • Dose the disease have a cure? if the doctors can assure a cure for the diease then let her flush the baby and save her life first.  if not let her, keep her faith in God. cause only him has the final say.

  • I don't really know what the chances are for both the mother and the child, but if the chances are very little then after giving birth, the child might possibly still die again. The Doctor has a better knowledge of this state so I recommend you take his advice, but if she can take the risk, then God be with her and the unborn child.

  • This is so sad,I would advice she flush the pregnancy too so has not to loose in both side at the end(herself and the child),the child might get infected too.

  • Yeah, there is every chance of survival for the person and the baby inside the womb too, cause I know of a guy that is popularly known, in fact a popular wrestler called ROMAN REIGN who has survived leukemia after serious treatments by professional doctors abroad, so there is every chance of survival for the woman and also with prayers things can also turn around for the good.

  • Foremost, I hope you believe, for if you do believe anything is possible, I may not know which is your religion, however, God is one! Pray, have Faith, there is always a reason for every season. Pray,.. Anything is possible with God.

  • There is hope of survival for both mother and fetus(unborn child) only if the patient decides to begin treatment within the first three months of her pregnancy. There may be several risks associated with the treatment one of which may be losing the child in the process or giving birth to the child with several defects. However, refusing treatment at all is a high risk decision and can be detrimental.

  • It is better for her to abort the pregnancy like the doctor said, treat her self while the disease is still at a curable stage ,get better and pray for another pregnancy without any life or death situation

  • Provided that is the only way for her to be saved, if that is the only way she should do it so that the man would not be a widower at this time of marriage. I suggest that they should go ahead and flush the baby.

  • There's  hope for her because with God all things are possible (Luke 1:37) and by the  wounds of Jesus Christ we are healed (Isaiah 53:5-6),if can only put her total trust in the healing power of Christ Jesus and be prayerful and thankful (pilihpians 4:6,1st thessoloians 5:18) .

  • Let her flush the pregnancy out, God will do another one than to lose her life, she should treat herself first, with prayers she's going to get pregnant again

  • There is hope in God as the one overcoming every situation we might find ourselves. Her faith will make her deliver safely and there shall be no loss of her own life and the baby's.

  • The earthly doctor says is not possible for a leukemia patient to be pregnant and survive with it.but their is one doctor who is greater than all other doctors and specializes in immpossibility and can do all things,which is Jesus I will urge her to hold on to her faith and God will see her through

  • Cancer of the blood is a terrible disease which might result to death. From the doctor's conclusion it is clear that the risk is high if your sister decides to keep the pregnancy. 

    Though abortion is what most people frown at but this condition warrants it. It is necessary so that the leukemia can be treated

  • Medically, flushing the pregnancy is the best. She is going to be on chemotherapy which would have an effect on the pregnacy. I'm sure she doesnt want to give birth to a child with deformity

  • In a case like this ,you need to get closer to God, pray well because I won't advice her to flush the child because even after flushing the child things may not work as expected. I pray she receive divine healing from above in Jesus name

  • Its better for her to listen to the doctor's advice because if she refuses the possibility of the baby and her dying is high...

    Let her treat herself first then try taking in again

    Am sure God is definitely going to open ways again

  • The best thing to do for your cousin is to allow the doctor to flush the pregnancy so that they can give her good treatment and after the sickness has gone she will get another pregnancy once her husband is in support of the doctor

  • No matter the situation one finds his or herself in life, there is always hope for them for hope is the only thing that keeps us alive and keeps us going as well. 

    We makes plans for tomorrow today but we're fully away that we ain't even sure if tomorrow but we didn't allow that hinder us from planing for the future.

    They is always hope for the sick no matter the sickness because we serve a miracle working God who never fails.

  • Yes there is hope for a person who has leukemia and pregnant if only he/ she take care of his or herself by prayer and visuvisi hospital for proper treatment.

    It  could also be  by doing exercises in the morning and in the evening especially for that of pregnant person.

  • The key and only solution to her problem is GOD run to GOD for help only him can save you and your unborn baby, the doctor has tried there and giving you condition of flushing your unborn baby, stand your faith and cry to GOD only him can heal you be and save your baby.

  • I think she needs someone to counsel her on this issue, because if she should go ahead with the pregnancy she can loose her life on the way and I also feel her pain because she has been looking for this baby for a long time. And I pray she overcome all this in Jesus name.

  • It is very sad to hear of someone with leukemia and also pregnant at same time. It might be difficult to survive this situation so i would advice that if the pregnancy has not taken too long, it should be legally aborted to avoid terrible results. 

    - Drumline Daniel - 2019-09-27 14:30:15 Quote

  • Firstly abortion is a sin and secondly her life is involved because if she didn't flush the baby she will end up loosing her life and the baby's life the problem here is trying to runaway from sin because she need to save need to save her life so that she have many babies but in order no to be selfish i think she should contact her pastor before she decides on anything

  • I will not advice her to terminate the life of an innocent unborn child. This is a critical condition but she shouldn't loose hope. Only God has the final say. She should hold Him by His words. All you can do for now is to pray fervently for her and help her build more hope on God.

    - Ugochi Lucy - 2019-09-27 14:52:09 Quote

  • Well, I will say it is very very possible because, the Bible made us to know that, with man it is impossible but with God, it is possible.

    I  know of a woman who had fibroids in her womb about six places and the woman by the grace of God gave birth to a boy without undergoing a surgery so there's nothing too hard for God to do.

    - Idowu Silas - 2019-09-27 14:55:57 Quote

  • My advice is that the lady should enter into serious prayer if she did not want to flush the baby or better still can't the baby be kept somewhere like an artificial womb while the mother is treating herself

  • Wow it is a nice story but sorry for what is happening your cousin sister has to reason twice so far how life is still they with her let her accept the advice of her husband if you know the love that the man has for you for her because with her life because with her life and health let her flush it out a child will be given to her after her held

  • Let her flush it out because she only have one life and let know that if she is alife she will have more opportunities of bearing a child but if she die she is have know opportunity of getting pregnant again. Please let her listen to her husband and flush it as the doctor advice. 

    - Paul Tochukwu - 2019-09-27 15:21:02 Quote

  • Yes there is hope but it going to take a lot of trust on the family and her side. The thought that cancer is dangerous and surviving it is a real miracle is what mostly kill. If pregnancy is dangerous with it, with God she can be an exception. Trust God for healing, tell you doctor to do their part and let God handle the rest. There is big hope for her, tell her not to lose faith.

  • With God all things are possible.... If she have faith in the great physician which is above, her faith will make her whole. Though it's hard medically but it's not the doctor that created her and put the pregnancy in her. I pray for quick recovery for her in Jesus name

  • Well I think they flush the pregnancy out in other for them too give her treatment but another thing is that there is nothing God cannot do also pray for tell your pastor to pray for her  because no sickness that God cannot heal

  • My dear talk to doctors of all doctors that can cure all forms of sicknesses and diseases he is the only one that can do this. This issue is difficult for man but Jesus is God of all possibilities. Please talk to him and locate a genuine man of God. Or make it to the next Holy Ghost service at RCCG  this coming Friday and receive your testimony.

  • Am sure she'll be much more bothered about the baby being healthy,my advice tho,flush out the pregnancy or if there are other measures to take she shouldn't hesitate,it won't be good to loose two lives

  • Sometimes, doctors are limited in the help they can offer to patients.  This is in the sence that it is not every sickness that needs medical attention.  Some sicknesses could me spiritual.  I would suggest that she should develop faith in God because every power bows in the name of God.  There are true prophets of God whom God can use and deliver her. Let her open up to her pastor and strong prophets, God will set her free from Leukemia and she would have her baby.

  • Lukemia is a very deadly disease that can even affect the child so my dear try and think twice because keeping that child will incure problem and cost. So abide by what the doctor the said. It will be hard emotionally but you have no choice than to flush it. Please to keep your home in peace do as the doctor said. May God be with you.

  • She may die. That means she may survive. Although the chance of her survival is slimmer compared to that of her death. But it won't be a cream if she decides to take a chance on her self. I won't advice that she keeps the pregnancy anyway but miracles does happen. I believe that too. As a matter of fact, leukemia patients are usually weak.

    - Ikima D. Mayor - 2019-09-27 16:49:02 Quote

  • The decision to flush the pregnancy or not depends on how far you have gone. If the pregnancy is more than four months old then I suggest that you let it before and forwgo the treatment for now. Good willing you will survive with your child. If the pregnancy is still early you can ahead and abort so that you can get yourself treated properly. Make sure you discuss this properly with your husband and come to a unanimous decision.

    - Aliyu Gana Aliyu - 2019-09-27 16:55:55 Quote

  • I suggest she flush out the pregnancy so she can be treated well,after she has been treated you should hope and pray for so she can conceive again because if she should carry the pregnancy with the cancer,the chance of surviving will be slim. And she might even die afterwards,so is better she flush the pregnancy because if there's life there's hope.

    at the end of the day she and the bay can die if she refuses to flush it to treat herself
