Mother Battles Ovarian Cancer While Pregnant

Shortly after Melanie Colton discovered she was pregnant, she felt a lump. Ultrasounds revealed a devastating diagnosis of ovarian cancer. Melanie and her husband Clint's life transformed into a whirlwind of appointments as she fought cancer and began chemotherapy at Methodist.


"This baby actually saved her life," said Dr. Todd Lovgren, Melanie's maternal-fetal medicine provider at Methodist Women's Hospital. He watched over Melanie's baby while Dr. David Crotzer, an oncologist at Methodist Estabrook Cancer Center treated her disease.

Learn more about Melanie's life-changing journey and the beautiful little girl she named Hope.
