A 19-year-old mom died from leukemia just months after losing her newborn son after she delayed her cancer treatments to deliver him.
Brianna Rawlings, of Sydney, Australia, spent just 12 days with her baby boy, Kyden, before he died after being born at just 26 weeks.
Rawlings was diagnosed with leukemia and decided to delay intense chemotherapy treatments in an attempt to carry her son safely to term.
Doctors also told her that there were two options about how she could go forward with her treatment. She could terminate her pregnancy and increase her chances of survival or she could forgo treatment to give her son a better chance of making it to term.
“Without hesitation, [Rawlings] chose to halve her own chances of survival in order to give her son a fighting chance with as much time as possible – womb side,” friends and family said.
Rawlings was just 17 weeks pregnant when she was diagnosed with the deadly blood cancer.
On being born, the baby got sick and couldn’t recover may be because he too had weakened immunity.
In the month following his death, Rawlings underwent “heavy” chemotherapy and radiation therapy as well as a cell transplant. But, ultimately, the treatments failed to keep her alive.
