A Las Vegas newscaster, has opened up about the rare disease that has kept her off the air for the last couple of weeks, proving that they do not have to deal with a molar pregnancy.
Michelle Velez, an anchor for NBC News 3 in Las Vegas, which has received the outpouring of support, as she is currently undergoing chemotherapy to kill the cancer cells and tissues in the body.
“I don’t know how to do this, so I’m going to be just right,” We wrote Thursday on Instagram. “As many of you know, I have worked with a number of health issues over the past couple of months. To be honest, we didn’t know exactly what’s going on so far. Last week I was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer that is caused by an abnormal pregnancy.”

A molar pregnancy is an abnormality of the placenta, and is caused by a problem during fertilization, according to the American Pregnancy Association. It is also known as gestational trophoblastic disease and occurs in about 1 out of every 1000 births. The disorder causes abnormal tissue to grow inside the womb and might lead to malignant tumors that will require chemotherapy, as would be the case for We.
“It’s very complicated, so I’m going to try to make it as clear as possible,” We wrote to her followers. “Before I do, I want you to know that my form of cancer is easy to treat. We have every reason to believe that I was going to be a free – just at that moment, is going to be tough.”
I also had a molar pregnancy,” she wrote. “It’s a pregnancy that is not viable – that is, the meaning of the fetus is never formed, but instead of having a miscarriage, and the pregnancy continued to grow, and produced a minimally invasive placenta tissue. Since the placenta is still in place, the body mimics a pregnancy, and the spikes of the pregnancy hormone (hCG) to astronomical levels. In essence, it was as if I was pregnant and had 5 babies all at one time.”
We said the faith had made her very ill and caused severe bleeding.

“In general, it can be treated with a surgical procedure for removing the tissue, and we strive to ensure that the concentration of the hCG levels until zero is reached. But In some very rare cases, a tissue can change to cancer… and it spread to the other organs of the body,” she wrote. “That’s what happened to me. Not a good reason for us to be stupid good fortune.”
We told them that they have already started chemotherapy, and she will probably lose her hair, but the fact that they have already been made by the two treatments. She said the plan is to continue to receive treatment to her body, and the concentration of the hCG levels back to zero.
“I don’t have the words to express what it’s like to find out that you have cancer… devastating… shocking and frightening to begin with, but there is so much more to this, I’ve never really understood,” she wrote. “I’m going to have to be as open and transparent about this journey, if I may, because it’s the only way I know how to do it.”

Over the weekend, We shared a video from her hospital bed and explained to her that she needed a blood transfusion because her hemoglobin count was down and that they needed to go in order to go ahead with the treatment. She said that while she has not yet had a chance to respond to every comment they received, and they will take the time to read all of them and appreciate the support.
