A cancer survivor who feared she was left infertile after an innovative cell therapy has had a baby boy.

Sammy Gray, 26, became one of the first to give birth after getting the treatment for non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

She was diagnosed in 2018 after her girl Harper was born.

Sammy had chemotherapy and radiotherapy but the cancer still progressed.

Staff at the Christie NHS Foundation Trust in Manchester gave her CAR-T cell therapy to train her body to fight back against the disease.

It worked and she was given the all-clear.

But the mum and partner Daley feared she would be unable to have a second child after her periods stopped.

The couple, of Blackpool, had just started IVF fertility treatment when they conceived naturally.

Son Walter was born on February 23.

Sammy said: “Walter is our little miracle. If it wasn’t for the CAR-T treatment, neither of us would be here now.”

Prof Adrian Bloor added: “The treatment saved her life and it’s fantastic she remains in remission and had a baby.”
