Now back to what this interview is all about. When she was diagnosed with cancer while she was still in journalism school, Karma and her brand-new boyfriend were confronted with the decision to freeze embryos before her chemotherapy and radiation began. We discuss the incredible role her sister played in helping Karma and Adam, now her husband, to become parents. We chat about what it was like to be expecting but not pregnancy, and the nosy things people say to you when you’re a mother of one.

Here are some great resources related to my discussion with Karma.
