Her name is Melissa Thompson, and she was diagnosed with breast cancer after the birth of her first daughter, Poppy.
The dilemma she faced involved the future of her family, since her chemotherapy treatments would essentially render her infertile.
So she decided to take on a procedure in which she would preserve her eggs for the chance for another child in the future. However, since her infertility was tied to her cancer treatment, she was forced to pay over $10,000 to store her eggs.
After hearing this, Melissa decided to take action, and she is now responsible for the passing of House Bill 7124.
