After Discovering Her Unborn Baby Was Terminally Ill, This Mum Made An Incredible Decision

Keri and Royce Young were expecting their second child. When they found out that their baby was terminally ill and would not live longer than a few hours, Keri decided to give birth for an emotional and totally generous reason. The statement the couple gave is overwhelming and their dedication can only be admired…

At 20 weeks pregnant, Keri and Royce learned that their baby was suffering from a brain deformity and that she wouldn’t survive for long after birth. But Keri still wanted to give birth to her terminally ill daughter.

‘She has perfect feet and perfect hands. She has perfect kidneys, perfect lungs and a perfect liver. Sadly, she doesn’t have a perfect brain,’ she wrote on Facebook.

Although Keri and Royce still decided to give birth to their baby, it was so they could donate her organs to other children in need.

‘This was not an easy decision. For the next 20 weeks, I will feel her kick, have the hiccups and we’ll be able to hear her perfect heart beating all the while knowing we’ll only get a few short hours with her when she’s born,’ she added.

Their daughter’s lungs will be donated to scientific research whilst her liver, kidneys and heart valves will be able to be transplanted.
