New Delhi :  

While, mothers are said to be God's angel, who can dedicate all their life to keep their children happy and protected, this time Carrie, a mother of six beautiful babies has proved the same yet another time.

According to reports, back in April Carrie was diagnosed with glioblastoma, an aggressive and rapidly growing form of brain cancer. She went for a check up after she started vomiting every now and then. Carrie was also suffering from a severe headache believing it to be a hint of migraine.

The sudden shock hit the family at a time when Carrie was eight weeks pregnant. The group of doctors suggested marry either to take chemotherapy in order to start a battle against the deadly disease or bring the baby to the world without chemotherapy. While, taking a chemotherapy meant termination of pregnancy, refusing the chemo was a step towards death.

Without a second thought, Carrie refused to take chemo and gave her unborn baby a chance at life. Latest media report suggests that, the Michigan mother of six sweet children has breathed her last on Saturday, three days after giving birth to a beautiful daughter. Doctors tried hard and finally took Carrie off life support, as suggested by her husband, Nick Deklyen.

"We gave up all of Carrie's treatment to give Life a chance to survive," Nick was quoted while interacting with people.com.

Though it is no wonder that every one can sacrifice more or less for their loved ones, this tale of Carrie and her daughter will make them memorable to the world forever and ever.
