Mom Carrying Baby without Brain to Term–to Donate the Organs

February 23, 2017

(CNN) – When Keri Young found out her unborn child didn’t have a brain, she made an unthinkably selfless decision. She decided to carry Eva to term to donate the organs to other babies in need. Young’s wrenching story broke hearts when her husband Royce Young, a writer for ESPN, posted an emotional letter praising her brave decision. “It would just be irresponsible to take the gifts that Eva has and not share them with others,” Royce Young told CNN about his wife’s decision.
