When Jenni learnt about her pregnancy she was given a choice to undergo treatment and lose her baby or continue with pregnancy, during which she would not be provided with cancer treatment.

Jenni made this ultimate sacrifice for her baby. However, soon after giving birth, Jenni succumbed to death.

Jenni's last words were about her newborn son as he was placed beside her a final time, her father said. As she felt for the baby, Jenni said, "I can kind of see him."
