Wyoming mom with cancer dies days after giving birth

Carrie's husband of 17 years, Nick DeKlyen, says his wife made the very hard decision to forgo the trial and refuse chemotherapy treatments in order to preserve the proper development of her unborn baby. If they chose to stay pregnant Carrie and the baby face a very uphill battle.

On Wednesday evening, DeKlyen delivered a baby girl named Life.

Doctors removed Carrie DeKlyen's feeding and breathing tubes on Thursday, a day after she gave birth to her daughter Life Lynn DeKlyen.

Speaking to local news 24 Hour News 8, Ms DeKlyn's sister-in-law, Sonya Nelson described the young mum as an "amazing person".

"We stayed by her until she took her last breath", Nick said.

Doctors told her that she was not eligible for the trial if she was expecting as the treatment could have caused birth defects in the baby. "She had the baby, and now it's time to go home".

"She's going to be fine", he said. "She's going to be healed".

The baby Life's health is "excellent", says Nick.

Nick and Carrie DeKlyen are fervent Christians. And before she knew she was pregnant.

She started experiencing severe headaches in March. "The doctor just said the timing (of the birth) couldn't have been more ideal".

In the operating room, doctors found that the mysterious mass was cancerous. It turned out the mass was cancer, doctors said, though they thought it was lymphoma. They tried to remove as much of it as they could. In May, tests showed that the tumor was growing back.

DeKlyen was referred to U-M. She is now 21 weeks pregnant and doctors are hoping she lives for seven more weeks so that the baby can be delivered.

On May 9, doctors drew blood and performed an MRI.

DeKlyen's physician told her she could not join the clinical trial if she was pregnant. Among her last words were, "I'll see you in Heaven". "We love the Lord with everything in us". "We talked about it, prayed about it", the husband said, but with "everything on the table" his wife chose to keep the baby.

Though she's gone now, Nick said her final, selfless act to forego her life for her baby's will "never be forgotten". I promise, you will die'.

The couple felt at peace. Though born premature, Nick said the baby is doing well.

"And she didn't want to do that", Nelson explains.

The couple, who hail from Wyoming in MI, have five other children ranging from two to 18 years old. Nick sold his share of a vending business to care for his wife.

On the Facebook page Cure 4 Carrie, the family shared a Bible verse, which reads, "Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends".

In the middle of June, DeKlyen started feeling sick again with headaches so bad they made her throw up.

In June, Mrs DeKleyn, who is pro-life, had a catheter inserted to relieve fluid from her brain after suffering vomit-inducing headaches.

She hasn't regained consciousness since. During an ultrasound this week, she had a heartbeat but wasn't moving. She was was born prematurely and weighed 1 pound, 4 ounces. She has her mother's middle name. "She is healthy, and she's nearly breathing on her own". After giving birth, Carrie was taken off life support.

As well as Life, Mrs DeKleyn is mum to Elijah, 18, Isaiah, 16, Nevaeh, 11, Leila, four, and Jez, two.

Carrie, 37, and Nick, 39, met at church when they were 10 and 12, respectively. She was very vital and incredibly loving. The stay-at-home mom cooked dinner for neighbors and went out of her way to help those in need. The rest of the family was very supportive, and they backed Carrie's decision of not treating her disease. "But this is what she wanted". "We are proud of her". Carrie carried her for 24 weeks and five days.

"This life is so quick", he said.

"I'm going to really miss those moments". Before I know it, I'm going to be an old man. "She's my only and I'm her only. I understand that. That gives me peace".
