Mom of 5 Who Refused Cancer Treatment While Pregnant Gives Birth While in Coma

A mother who sacrificed her own life so her unborn child could live is now off life support after delivering her sixth child while in a coma.

Carrie DeKlyen was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer back in April while pregnant with her sixth child, and she opted to forgo her own treatment so she could carry her daughter.

Carrie ended up delivering her daughter, named Life, at  24 weeks and 5 days at 5:30 pm, the Facebook page Cure 4 Carrie, which updates followers on Carrie’s condition reported.

“She is doing as well as they had hoped,” the update read about baby Life.

PEOPLE reports that the 37 year old mother of six was diagnosed in April with glioblastoma, “an aggressive, rapidly growing malignant tumor that can affect the brain and spinal cord.”

She chose against experimental treatment so her daughter could live.
