Aimee Parani and her husband Chris were living in St. Thomas when she learned she was pregnant with their second child. The couple, who also had a four-year-old, was concerned about schools for their children and decided to move to Florida. It was there that Aimee had a lump in her breast checked out learned she had breast cancer. Aimee was told her best chance for survival was to abort her unborn baby—an option she and her husband were unwilling to consider. Aimee turned to her family for advice—and traveled to her hometown to seek consultation with the experts there. Her first stop was our System Partner, Jersey Shore University Medical Center. At Jersey Shore, Aimee's physician referred her here to Dr. Deborah Toppmeyer, where she found a plan that would help her fight her cancer without losing her baby. Following treatment at the Cancer Institute of New Jersey, Aimee returned to Jersey Shore to receive her radiation treatments.
