Meet Featured After 35 Mom Missa Valdepeña Edmonds!

After 35 Mom Missa Valdepeña Edmonds delivered baby boy, Julian Louis, at age 40. Her husband, Guy, was 49. Missa has a 22 year old, 14 year old, and 11 year old; Guy has a 32 year old, 14 year old and 11 year old and five grandchildren!

Missa was diagnosed at in October 2008 age 35 with ovarian cancer. She underwent removal of the affected ovary and a year of chemotherapy and radiation. In 2011, Missa was told she was cancer-free, but that it was unlikely she would ever have children since chemotherapy and radiation often affect the normal ovary that remains. However, on Father’s Day 2014 Missa found out she was pregnant with her little miracle 8 months into her pregnancy! She thought she was no more than 4 months, but she much further along!

Julian Louis was born August 25, 2014. Missa has been cancer-free for 4 years! Missa and Guy feel so blessed. Julian turned one year old on August 25th! He loves Winnie the Pooh 🙂

Thank you for sharing, Missa! Congrats on your miracle baby and on being cancer-free! Happy birthday, Julian!
