CdA Woman Faces Cancer, Pregnancy

Reporter David Cole/Coeur d'Alene Press tweets that "Today Show" may be in Coeur d'Alene Thursday to follow up on this story:

It was a beautiful sunny day at Coeur d'Alene Cellars on her wedding day, Sept. 3, 2011, and Linsey Mattison felt oddly uncomfortably in her gown. "My dress was so tight, I felt like I couldn't breathe," the then 32-year-old lawyer and Coeur d'Alene High School graduate said this week. Other than that, it was one of the best days of her life. She said that incredible discomfort and difficulty breathing that day was likely the first hint something was seriously wrong with her health. She didn't know it at the time, but a cancerous mass was rapidly growing inside her chest and pressing up against her lungs. Days after the wedding, she began having chest pains, which hardly made sense for a fit young woman who exercised regularly and ate healthy/David Cole, CdA Press. More here. (Jerome A.
