Inspiring Story – Mother Refuses Chemo To Save Unborn Child, Dies After Birth | RedCowHills

Faced with the knowledge that only chemotherapy would save her from terminal neck cancer, newly-pregnant Stacie Crimm made the ultimate sacrifice.

The 41-year-old, who had been told by doctors she would never be able to conceive a child, decided to refuse the treatment so her unborn daughter could live instead.

Stacie was able to survive for five months before being forced to deliver Dottie Mae, weighing just 2lbs 1oz, by Caesarean section – and even managed to hold her on one occasion before succumbing to the disease three days later.
