Asked if we would die for our children, most of us unhesitatingly answer yes. Rarely, however, are we put to the test.
As USAToday reports, 17-year-old Jenni Lake has made that ultimate sacrifice. After learning that she was pregnant, Jenni stopped chemotherapy treatments for tumors on her brain and spine. As Jenni's mom shared: "She would either have to terminate the pregnancy and continue the treatments, or stop the treatments, knowing that it could continue to grow again."
Twelve days after her son was born, Jenni lost her fight with cancer.
