Woman who chose baby instead of chemotherapy has died
DETROIT - A Michigan woman who sacrificed the chance to prolong her life in order to give birth to her sixth child has died.
Nick DeKlyen tells The Associated Press that his wife, Carrie DeKlyen, died early Saturday surrounded by family.
He says among the last things he said to her were, "I'll see you in Heaven."
Doctors removed Carrie DeKlyen's feeding and breathing tubes on Thursday, a day after she gave birth to her daughter Life Lynn DeKlyen. The mother chose to forgo chemotherapy to treat her brain cancer, since it would have meant ending her pregnancy.
Life Lynn was born prematurely and weighs 1 pound, four ounces, but is doing well.
The couple from the western Michigan city of Wyoming have five other kids.
