Jessica Hanna garnered the world’s attention after the mom of four chose to forgo cancer treatments for the sake of her unborn baby.

She had been diagnosed with terminal breast cancer while she was 14 weeks pregnant.

The doctor insisted that she should have an abortion, but she instead chose to continue with her pregnancy, eventually giving birth to her youngest son, Thomas.

When she spoke with Currents News, she told us about that first scan checking for cancer after her son was born.

Unfortunately, less than two months after that interview, Hanna’s cancer came back, this time stage four.

She passed away on Saturday, Apr. 6, surrounded by her loving family.
