Iowa Woman's Legacy Carried On Through Daughter

Stream WZTV Fox 17 Newscasts LIVE starting with Fox 17 This Morning at 5am and News at 9pm.

An Iowa couple's bittersweet love story is a tale made for Hollywood. One which Hollywood has wanted to make, but Nate Yoho isn't ready for. 

Nate and his wife Laura have a baby girl named Caralyn together, but Laura never met her daughter. 

In a report from the Press-Citizen, the mother was diagnosed with a brain tumor that claimed her life four months before Caralyn was born. The couple knew of Laura's condition and had eggs frozen before undergoing chemotherapy. Laura's best friend offered to be a surrogate and carried the child. 

Although Laura died shortly after her baby shower, her best friend gave birth to the baby and was part of keeping Laura's memory alive.
