Woman Dies of Cancer After Refusing Treatment in Order to Save Unborn Child
by Moody Adams “An Oklahoma woman died of cancer last month after refusing chemotherapy that would have threatened the life of her unborn child,” newsok.com reports.
Stacie Crimm, 41, was pregnant, when she was diagnosed with head and neck cancer. She was forced to choose between exposing her unborn child to a potentially fatal course of chemotherapy and putting her own life on the line.
“Her daughter, Dottie Mae, was born August 16th by emergency C-section after Crimm collapsed in her home.”
Doctors saved the baby but Stacie, the mom, did not make it.
Her brother Ray Phillips and his wife are now the legal guardians of the child.
This was a most unselfish act in the most selfish of worlds.
