Hastings woman battles stage 4 cancer

Megan Kelly of Hastings was diagnosed with breast cancer
while pregnant with her son, Liam.

After years of infertility issues, Megan Kelly couldn't have been happier when she learned in November 2011 that she was pregnant.
The fear of a new mother was compounded three months later when she found a lump on her breast.

"I talked to my OBGYN about it and she just related it to pregnancy hormone issues and said we just keep an eye on it," Megan said from her Hastings home recently.

Within a few months, doctors had determined that the lump was cancerous and today Megan has stage 4 breast cancer that has spread throughout much of her body.

Note: A benefit for Megan Kelly is from 4-7 p.m. July 28 in the Celebration Center at First. St. Paul's Lutheran Church, 501 N. Burlington Ave. The event will feature a bake sale, talent show, silent auction, face painting and a raffle.
