Adrienne Toth, mom battling cancer, dies

SHARON, Pa. (WKBN) – It’s a post her family didn’t want to post: “Adrienne is at peace. Her pain and suffering are gone.”

WKBN first told you about Adrienne Toth in 2012. She was 31 years old and pregnant, about to celebrate her first wedding anniversary with her husband Dean, when she was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer.

Adrienne Toth of Sharon lost her battle to cancer.“If I wasn’t pregnant, if I hadn’t gone to my first ultrasound, I never would have thought it was cancer because at 30, who thinks, ‘I have a lump and it’s probably cancer,'” she said.

Toth started Chemo in her second trimester, driving to Pittsburgh every week for treatment. Her growing baby was a welcome distraction.

With a team of supporters behind her, otherwise known as Adrienne’s Army, she continued fighting cancer.

Then after months of waiting, Adrienne and Dean’s little bundle of joy, Kellan, was born on April 17th, 2013.

After a double mastectomy, Adrienne learned that she was cancer-free. Then in March of 2014, it was the results both she and her doctors didn’t want or expect: the cancer had spread to her liver.

“I refuse to let it put me in a dark place,” Adrienne said.

She kept fighting until the very end. A message from her family this morning read: “Our family can never repay the love and kindness you’ve shown [Adrienne, Dean and Kellan] and us. Adrienne would want you all to know that she loved all of you so much in her time with us.”

Calling hours will be held on Tuesday at J. Bradley McGonigle Funeral Home in Sharon from 4 to 8 p.m. Brief calling hours will be held on Wednesday from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m., followed by funeral services at noon at Notre Dame Parish in Hermitage.
