Rene Redmann was told by doctors she would not be able to carry a child after surviving two breast cancer battles.
But just when Redmann thought all hope of having her own family was over, her best friend Amy Dubuc came through.
Redmann and her husband saved some fertilized eggs for a try at surrogacy, and Dubuc, who has four children of her own, offered to carry her best friend's child to term. She is eight months pregnant.
Redmann nominated Dubuc for breakfast in bed from chef Emeril Lagasse.
