"I heard it. I cried about it," Kemp told KSAT. "You think about what it means. And for me, I go into 'What do we need to do?'"
With a 3-year-old daughter and a son on the way, Kemp said she has no choice but to be a warrior. Her situation is so rare that doctors have only documented about 275 cases, and each is different.
"She's not a candidate for surgery because of her pregnancy, so her only option is chemotherapy," Kemp's oncologist, Dr. Ed Hesita, told KSAT.
Hesita is a doctor with Texas Oncology, a network of comprehensive cancer care centers throughout the state.
Every two weeks, Kemp starts a 24-hour chemo treatment. Tests show the baby hasn't been negatively affected, but Hesita told KSAT that Kemp needs more aggressive chemo very soon.
"We're trying to figure out whether or not to deliver early or go more aggressive while pregnant," Kemp said.
"I went from possibly having to terminate, to maybe deliver at 24 weeks, to now. I'm at 32 weeks pregnant still doing my treatment," Kemp said.
Kemp's family has set up a GoFundMe page to help pay for medical costs. As of Saturday morning $3,875 of the family's $25,000 goal had been raised.
