They have continued to follow in her footsteps as a ‘predominantly raw, ethical vegan,’ she stated. A year after her husband died, an Ohio widow gave birth to a baby girl using an embryo they had created together.
Wilson, 36, of Cleveland, Ohio, decided to become a single mother a year after her husband, Travis, 45, died in February 2019 from cancer, using embryos created with his $perm during treatment.
Logan, the 36-year-old new mom’s daughter, has been a huge source of comfort to her.
Julie and Travis met at work in 2007 and hit it off immediately.
They got married in 2012 and started trying for a baby after talking about having children constantly.
Julie added, ‘We made each other better individuals, and we complimented one another brilliantly.
After coping with reproductive challenges, Julie became pregnant in 2016, but the pregnancy ended in miscarriage at 12 weeks.
This year, a huge tumor was detected on Travis’ brain, adding to his suffering. In the hope of having a kid before he died, the couple decided to try IVF after he was diagnosed with cancer.
Before he started any therapies, they banked his $perm to ensure that it wouldn’t be damaged.
When Travis died, Julie was left with the five embryos they had developed, so she had a chance to become a mother to their child.
Julie discovered she was pregnant with twins during a six-week ultrasound, but a later checkup revealed that one of the babies had died. She gave birth to her daughter Logan on May 9, 2020.
Logan, she claims, is the best thing that has ever happened to her.
To help other families coping with the effects of a brain cancer diagnosis, Julie founded a foundation in her husband’s honor.
