  • A Cancer Diagnosis Led To Lucy Choosing Surrogacy With Adonis Family

A cancer diagnosis led to Lucy choosing surrogacy with ADONIS Family

Treatment: Surrogacy
Provider: Adonis Medical Group
Date: Jun 2019

Lucy was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in her late teens. The removal of her ovaries and uterus led her to ADONIS Family when she and her husband decided they want to start a family.

"Hello! I would like to tell you about our journey. My story is not very positive, but I do not write to annoy anyone, on the contrary, to give everyone the strength to fight obstacles and never to despair.

It started when I was diagnosed with a benign left ovarian tumor. I was 16 years old and was not worried about it. Benign? Well. Everything became coincidental. After a few years I got discomfort in the abdomen, I was sick, it got worse. The pain was constant. I was really scared. No wonder. It turned out that I had ovarian cancer. This was not the first stage of the disease. The ovaries and the uterus had to be removed. I was only 18 years old when I realized that I could no longer have children. I understood that unconsciously all men want to have their children, so I did not want to meet anyone. It seemed unthinkable for me to tell my man about my problem.

I met my future husband when I was 34 years old. We formed a trusting relationship almost immediately and I could not help but tell him. He wanted kids and I was ready for him to leave me. But he asked to go to a fertility clinic. We searched for a suitable option. We understoodwe didn't have much money. We were looking for a clinic with positive reviews, fair price, and good specialists. So, we chose Adonis Medical Center. We did not think for a long time, we wrote to the clinic and set an appointment. When we arrived, it was obvious that they were waiting for us. The manager told us everything and offered us surrogacy with egg donation. We understood that it was our only chance, so we agreed. We liked the clinic very much, very professional doctors, everything was clear and transparent. Our baby was born a year ago. We are very happy to have chosen Adonis.

Best regards, Lucy"
