We want to tell you Ben Hanan's story. This young man is a wedding and family photographer, and he sees the world through the lens of his camera. He is 27 years old, married, and now he is also a young father. The young couple from Minneapolis learned about pregnancy in May 2018, shortly after the wedding.

The newlyweds were happy and looked forward to welcoming their firstborn and starting a new chapter in their wonderful life story. And that is when they received shocking news – Sarah, Ben’s 7-month pregnant wife, was diagnosed with an aggressive form of 2nd stage breast cancer. It happens to 1 in every 3,000 expectant mothers.

Doctors convinced the young people to start treatment immediately. It was a difficult decision because the tumor had increased from 0.98 to 1.73 inches in some 20 days. They had to act fast and come to terms with it. Her hair was falling out, she wouldn’t be able to breastfeed, and they had to spend all of the baby money on chemotherapy.

The photo took Reddit by storm.

And the comments of support received an incredible amount of “ups.”

Little Noah Benjamin Hanan came into this world this year on January 14th. It’s a miracle that he was born healthy! Perhaps he will grow up and will also get interested in photography and art, like his father, and will tell this story from a different perspective.

Ben Hanan's film The Cost of Freedom that tells the tale of a father who has to say goodbye to his newborn baby as he leaves to fight overseas.

Now the couple will hope for the best with a long treatment ahead. How can they give up now?

Things you need to know about the way cancer is diagnosed during pregnancy and how harmful it is.

Symptoms of breast cancer often coincide with the state of a pregnant woman in the later stages: vomiting, headaches, lumps in the breasts, and rectal bleeding. Cervical cancer can be accurately diagnosed through HPV and Pap tests, as well as ultrasound.

Relatively safe ways of diagnosing this condition include:

X-ray. If desired, the mother’s belly is covered with a lead shroud to protect the fetus from the harmful rays.

CT scan. This method does not imply a direct effect of radiation on the fetus, so it is no more harmful than the previous one.

Magnetic resonance therapy, ultrasound, and biopsy. These methods also won’t harm the pregnancy.

We can only add that health issues should be taken in all seriousness because no money can turn the clock back. The great response of the internet community to Ben’s story also whose us importance of love and support. Everything is possible when there’s hope!
