Cancer-stricken teen mom dies for her baby

Jenni Lake, 17, was diagnosed with cancer in October 2010. Seven months later, while undergoing chemotherapy, she discovered she that was pregnant.  Jenni was given a choice: proceed with treatment and endanger the life of her child or end her treatment and risk losing her own life.  Jenni courageously chose to discontinue chemotherapy and save her child.  She gave birth to a healthy boy in November 2011 and passed away two weeks later. Lifesite News recounts her story.

An excerpt:
"After the delivery, she told the nurse, 'I'm done. I did what I was supposed to do. My baby is going to get here safe.'"
