Sacrifice defined by Webster: "Surrender of something for the sake of something else; something given up or lost."

Defined by a parent:  Shortly after finding out that she was pregnant, Stacie Crimm found out she had cancer of the neck and head.  Chemotherapy could save her life...but could jeapordize the baby.  What to do?

Sacrifice.  Stacie decided the life of the child was more important than her own.  Stacie refused the chemotherapy.  She was able to hold little Dottie Mae for 3 hours before Stacie slipped into a coma.  Stacie died three days later.

When Stacie learned of the news of her cancer, she called her brother to relay the news.  When the subject came up about chemotherapy, she said, "If I have to make a decision, you know what it's going to be.  Don't even ask, I've lived my life."

Sacrifice defined.  Thank you, Stacie.
