 Teenage Mother Sacrifices Life for Her Baby

Teenager, Jenni Lake succumbed to death because of cancer, soon after giving birth to a baby boy.

At 16-years of age Jenni was diagnosed with a tumor in her brain. She was going through chemotherapy and other cancer treatments. During the course of treatment, Jenni was informed that she might never be able to conceive.

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.
