Jillian O’Connor – who has terminal cancer, but decided to continue her pregnancy before aggressively treating it – holds her newborn son, Declan. Born eight days ago, at seven pounds six ounces on Feb.1, 2015, the baby is healthy and proof of the rightness of her decision, says the nurse and mother of three. She will now begin more aggressive treatment for her Stage 4 breast cancer tomorrow. (Julie Oliver / Ottawa Citizen)
