If you do not want to pull out a box of tissues then you might want to skip this one. Compare this 18 year old teen to the teens on teen mom and see what you think. On November 9, 2011, Jenni Lake gave birth to a baby boy. Nothing special in that right? Well, in order to give birth to her son and to not lose him, the 18 year old did not get any treatment for the tumors that were growing on her brain and her spine. 12 days after the birth of her son, Jenni passed away. When Jenni initially found out about her disease she did treat it with chemo and other therapies. Shortly after she started treatment she was also told she probably would never have babies so she and her boyfriend (pictured above holding frame) stopped using protection when they had sex.

Jenni was in bad shape when she gave birth and when she was admitted to the delivery room whispered to her nurse the words that have been used as a mantra by everyone close to her since. "I'm done. I did what I was supposed to do. My baby is going to get here safe."
