Skip to comments.Mom With Cancer Dies After Incredibly Selfless Act to Protect the Life of Her Unborn Baby Girl
Posted on 04/03/2014 8:13:32 AM PDT by xzins
A New York woman died last month after making the ultimate sacrifice for her unborn baby girl delaying cancer treatment and forging on with her pregnancy.
Elizabeth Joice was first diagnosed with a malignant tumor in 2010, though she was declared cancer-free after undergoing surgery and four rounds of chemotherapy.
After clearing that barrier, she and her husband, Max, wanted to start a family, but doctors told her it would be virtually impossible to conceive.
But Joice was a fighter.
Defying the odds yet again, she and her husband announced that they were pregnant in the summer of 2013, offering up unexpected joy to their friends and family.
And thats when Joice found out just one month later that her cancer had returned.
She and Max were faced with a horrific choice: Abort the child and begin treatment immediately, start treatment and continue the pregnancy or delay much-needed medical care in an effort to protect the unborn baby girl.
Joice ultimately decided to delay treatment.
Having a kid was one of the most important things in the world to her, Max told the New York Post. She said, If we terminate the pregnancy and it turns out I cant have a baby [later], Ill be devastated. She knew this might be her only chance.

Why can’t our conservative candidates, like Ronald Reagan used to do, talk about the precious baby. Quit talking about side issues and exceptions. Focus on the baby and how precious it is, and how it is our chance to reach out in love.
This Mom did more than just talk.
Better to stop paying American bloodsuckers and spend the money to beat the cancer.
Gosh its so foggy in TN this morning..
Oh its just my glasses..
This lady’s family must be so proud of her..
Oh - and end foreign aid, golden camels and mosque building .
**This Mom did more than just talk.**
Now this is a true mother, in every sense of the word, nurturing and protecting the life of her child, even though it was at the expense of her own.
An act of unconditional love...
I wonder, how is this story really any different than this: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/3140209/posts ?

I agree about spending money to beat cancer instead of foreign aid, public TV, planned parenthood, endowment for the arts.
As I write my 3 yr old grandson is in the hospital fighting cancer...neuroblastoma.
Why can’t we announce a “war on cancer” and forget wasting all this money and effort and take on this disease once and for all?!
BTTT. Thanks for the ping.

An amazing story... and as sad as it is, it is also heroic and ... human.
In a world full of liberal inhumanity and lunacy, it’s good to know there are still decent folk.
Thanks for posting this, Xzins. Prayers out for the child, the husband, and the mother’s soul.
Compare and contrast that self sacrifice with the profound selfishness that causes a mother to murder her baby in the womb.
I’m saying prayers for your grandson.
Thank you, Bulwyf
A small step, but nevertheless, a good one.
Prayers for your grandson.
