A resident of the UK, deliberately failed cancer treatment during pregnancy, has died. It is reported by The New York Post.

In 2014, Gemma Nuttall (Gemma Nuttall) learned that she had ovarian cancer, being the fourth month of pregnancy. In order to begin treatment, which includes chemotherapy, the British had to terminate the pregnancy. But Nuttall decided to sacrifice himself for his daughter.

For the nine months of pregnancy, the tumor has increased dramatically, and doctors were forced to do a cesarean section before you start removing the tumor.

“They kept her awake, so she could see my little beautiful daughter Penelope, to hold it in peace,” reads the description of the GoFundMe page, created by mother Nuttall, Helen Sprott (Helen Sproates).

Removal of the tumor after birth was successful, but in April 2016, the doctors diagnosed the Nuttall brain cancer and lung cancer. To collect money for treatment of the girl was created a page on GoFundMe. The campaign has assisted Hollywood actress Kate Winslet, the result of which was collected 440 thousand dollars.

At the beginning of 2018, the study showed that in the body of the Brit, no cancer. However, in the middle of the year, doctors once again found tumors, this time in the spine, brain and lungs. These tumors were inoperable, and the woman died.
