Michigan woman forgoes cancer treatment to have sixth child

She was diagnosed with an aggressive type of cancer, but she refused the treatment because that would've meant stopping her pregnancy and she preferred to have her baby.

"Carrie is off all support and is in her final hours", he wrote.

Nick said, "She's going to be fine". If they made a decision to stay pregnant Carrie and the baby face a very uphill battle. He said she was determined to see the pregnancy through.

After undergoing four surgeries, Ms DeKlyen was placed in an induced coma in July - and never regained consciousness.

A MI mother, who chose to forgo her cancer treatments including chemotherapy, that would have given her the chance to prolong her life to give birth to her sixth child, died Saturday, three days after giving birth, her husband confirmed to ABC News. "But this is what she wanted. The doctor just said the timing (of the birth) couldn't have been more flawless".

Life was born at 5.30pm while her mother lied in a coma. Life was born at 24 weeks and weighed just 1 pound 4 oz (567g).

"We gave up all of Carrie's treatment to give Life a chance to survive".

"My wife loves the Lord and she loves her children more than anything", he said. "She wanted to protect this child".

Before she died, Nick kissed her on the forehead.

Though born premature, Nick said the baby is doing well. Carrie and her husband Nick had met at church when she was 10 and he was 12. They lived in the western Michigan City of Wyoming with their five kids.

"When our daughter gets old enough, I'll tell her the story about her fearless mommy", Nick explained through tears.
