“The decision to have my son at a young age was not based on political or religious beliefs. On the contrary, it was based on emotion and a sense of responsibility.”Dr. Nicole Saphier
Dr. Nicole Saphier, the Director of Breast Imaging at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center – Monmouth, Fox News Contributor, and Author, shared the story behind her title with us on Saturday, July 3rd and Sunday, July 4th, 2021.
Nicole was raised in Scottsdale, Arizona. Her father was an attorney and her mother, a licensed counselor that worked with children that were victims of abuse and mental illness. She had a child while in high school stating “The decision to have my son at a young age was not based on political or religious beliefs. On the contrary, it was based on emotion and a sense of responsibility. Had this happened decades prior, I may have been forced into an unsafe abortion or hidden away during my pregnancy and my child would have been given away. I am grateful to have had the choice to choose life“. She is married to Dr. Paul Saphier, an endovascular neurosurgeon, whom she met in medical school; they have two sons together.
The news that you’re pregnant as a student in high school is news that will rock anyone’s world. For Nicole, a type A determined young lady with a lot of dreams and goals hit hard. Being told by some around her that she would now never reach those goals may have been exactly what she needed to hear to prove them all wrong.
