The day after receiving a cancer diagnosis, Catalina found out she was pregnant.

She underwent a mastectomy and reconstructive implant surgery while ~12 weeks pregnant at St. David's Georgetown Hospital. Catalina was then able to continue a healthy pregnancy and gave birth to a healthy baby girl at St. David's Georgetown Hospital in July of 2023!

This past weekend, we honored her at the Texas Women's Basketball game presented by St. David's HealthCare.

What a special moment for Catalina and her family!
