    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, 37, 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.

    Feel bad for her family. 6 kids just lost their mom.

    Wow. There is no "best of" here, only the worst of DU. To ridicule the most selfless act of another.

    You're right. There is a special place in hell for those who can't resist turning this into a political debate.

    There was no proof that the experimental treatment would have actually worked for her. It's sad that she died, but her baby lives on.

    Whether it's soldiers who sacrifice themselves for others on the battlefield, police officers who make that ultimate sacrifice, or Moms making this sacrifice, Progs really aren't comfortable with the idea of heroes, people who in some way have done better than them.

    Rather suitably, a hero who accomplished worse than nothing.
