NEW YORK (WABC) --Eyewitness News is taking you inside NewYork-Presbyterian for a look at some extraordinary stories that we call Medical Marvels. It's WABC's Emmy-nominated digital series exclusive to abc7NY.
In this segment we meet Pamela Sternberg. In 2013, she was given a devastating diagnosis when she was 22 weeks pregnant with her fourth son. She had a cancerous brain tumor. The tumor was removed successfully but, Pamela was still in danger. That's when she went to New York-Presbyterian for help. A team of specialists, led by Dr. Andrew Lassman, went to extraordinary lengths to treat Pamela with radiation, while ensuring her unborn baby was shielded from harm.
