Wife Of Fort Campbell Soldier Gives Birth To Quadruplets, Prepares To Battle Cancer Again

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, TN (LEX 18/WKRN) Sergeant Charles Gaytan and his wife Kayla welcomed four new babies on Friday afternoon in Nashville.

“We were just really shocked because we weren't expecting four at all,” said Kayla.

Kayla told former LEX 18 reporter Josh Breslow that she was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.

In January 2016, the mother of two had just finished up five months of chemo and was in remission.

The 29-year-old found out she was pregnant again. She blogged about her pregnancy with the quadruplets on Facebook, saying there were no complications.

“My original goal to make was 34 weeks because I figured if I could beat cancer, surely I could like, make it to 34 weeks with quads. I just kept trying to tell myself that I could do that,” said Kayla.

About a month ago, Kayla noticed symptoms of her cancer, and a biopsy confirmed what she had feared.

“You think you've beat it the first time. When it comes back, you're just wondering, why get pregnant with these four babies and then, you know, something like this happens,” said Kayla.

Sgt. Charles Gaytan, a Fort Campbell soldier said that his heart broke when he found out his wife had cancer again.

“She'd worked really hard to get over the first time and to come back and have to go through it all again, it breaks my heart,” said Sgt. Gaytan.

Lillian was the first quadruplet born, then Victoria, Michael, then Charles.

The smallest baby was Michael, born two pounds, eight ounces. Charles is the biggest, born three pounds, two ounces.

All four babies are in NICU. Kayla said they are doing well.

Kayla is ready to take on cancer for a second time.

“We know that He's got to have a different plan up there for us, and surely everything's going to work out in the end,” she said.

Doctors told Kayla she has a 50-50 chance of living another five years, but Kayla said she will not give up.
