The unshakable Moriah Koch: Young wife, mother steadfast through cancer diagnosis | Brainerd Dispatch

Sept. 30 was a bittersweet day for the Koch family.

In the early hours of that Friday morning, Moriah and Tim Koch welcomed 5-pound baby Casey into the world, more than a month before his due date.

“He’s a tiny little peanut,” Moriah said.

With the beginning of the first chapter of Casey’s life came the opening of the next chapter of Moriah’s journey to keep hers. Doctors planned the baby’s early arrival, a plan that allowed Moriah to receive hormone treatments as soon as possible. The treatments are necessary because three months into pregnancy with her third child, tests revealed 24-year-old Moriah faced breast cancer.”It was really scary at first,” Moriah said. “Just the overwhelmedness that I had cancer, and then it hit as, ‘What am I going to be able to do? What am I going to take? Is this baby going to be OK, or is he not going to be able to make it? Are they going to have to terminate?'”
