February 18, 1990 - A pregnant 43-year old mother said through tears yesterday that the unborn baby she hoped would save the life of her cancer-stricken daughter was conceived as an act of love.

Mary Ayala became pregnant in the hope that the baby will become a suitable bone marrow donor to her daughter Anissa, who has leukemia for the past two years and could soon die.

Her mother said she felt the baby, a girl due on April 13th, would be a blessing from God.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
