There are still people like this mama in the world. It moves me to tears. May her husband and children rise up and call her blessed. God be with their family.

Mother sacrificed her life by refusing cancer treatment so her premature baby would live
Lorraine Allard lost cancer battle three weeks after giving birth

25th January 2008

A mother made the ultimate sacrfice by refusing cancer treatment to give birth to a healthy baby boy.

Lorraine Allard was told four months into the pregnancy the devastating news that she was in the advanced stages of cancer.

A further blow came when doctors advised her to terminate the foetus, which was 23 weeks old, and start chemotherapy straight away.

Instead, she insisted on waiting long enough to give her unborn son a chance to survive, telling her husband, Martyn: "If I am going to die, my baby is going to live."

What a testimony to a life well lived! Should make us all appreciate every last second God gives to us, and every blessed baby in our arms. Thanks for sharing this information as I had not heard it, if only the world understood such love...
