Jenny begins suffering from excruciating headaches. After several days of torture, she finally goes to her doctor. At the checkup, the doctor finds a large object, about 1 inch in diameter (2 cm), inside her brain. Shortly after comes the shocking diagnosis: cancer.
Even if Jenny is happy about the baby, she stands before the hardest decision of her life. The baby will die if she continues her chemotherapy. But if she stops the chemotherapy, she will die herself. It is a brutal life or death decision.
Jenny has decided: she stops the chemotherapy and gives birth to the little Chad Michael 9 months later. That means, however, that she will die. When Chad is born, she takes the midwife’s hand, pulls her close, and whispers: “I did it. I fulfilled my duty.”
