In 2009, due to a mass growing on one ovary, Shae underwent surgery to remove the mass and ovary during her pregnancy with her second child. The mass was found to be benign (non-cancerous). Two years later, while trying to become pregnant for a third child, another mass was found on Shae’s existing ovary.
