“You have liver cancer,” the doctor said to the woman who was four months pregnant. “The only way we can treat you is to abort your baby.”
“No,” she courageously said.
She insisted on waiting long enough (before beginning treatment) to give her unborn son a chance to survive, telling her husband Martyn: “If I am going to die, my baby is going to live.”
She waited, treasuring every day she could give her son a chance at life. Then at 25 weeks she went into labor and he was born, tiny, but healthy.
Immediately, the chemotherapy was begun. But it was too late. On January 18th, two months after the birth of her son, Liam, this courageous mother died.
