This woman endured all agony and refused all therapies in order to safeguard her child’s life.
In 2016, the moving story of Dau Thi Huyen Tram, a 25-year-old Vietnamese police officer serving in Ha Tinh province, moved many people to tears. Tram married in early 2016 and was overjoyed when she found out she was expecting her first kid. When she found out she had lung cancer at week 19 of her pregnancy, she was taken aback.
Tram remained cool despite his fears of the dreadful, and continued to combat the sickness. Tram refused radiation therapy and chemotherapy despite physicians’ advice to abort the pregnancy for cancer treatment. Instead, she chose to make a self-sacrifice in order to protect her unborn child. Her cancer cells eventually spread across her entire body.
Tram’s condition deteriorated on July 10, prompting physicians to undertake a surgery to rescue her and her baby. The surgical crew was moved to tears when they saw doctors operating on Tram in a sitting posture since they couldn’t anesthetize or inject sedative and had to rely on spinal anesthesia. Tram’s newborn kid cried to say welcome to the world at the age of 29 weeks after the doctors’ efforts. The newborn boy weighed 1.2 kilograms when he was born and was sent to the National Hospital of Obstetrics and Gynecology for further treatment.
Tram’s health deteriorated, and physicians concluded that prolonging Tram’s life would be too difficult. Tram was able to enjoy the joy of becoming a mother after a lot of sorrow, but on July 27, 2016, at 2 p.m., Tram breathed her last in the immense anguish of her family and coworkers.
It took seventeen days of becoming a mother and trying to protect her from succumbing to a dreadful sickness. Her wonderful parenting aided her in overcoming the physical anguish. She may now rest in peace, and her child will always be pleased to have such a wonderful mother.
