Martyr for Life

Agata Mroz, the Polish volleyball star, died so that her unborn child could live.

Striken with cancer, she was given a chance at survival via bone marrow transplant. She refused the treatment because of her pregnancy. After her daughter was born, she went ahead with the procedure, but contracted a fatal infection and passed away on Tuesday.

What a beautiful soul:

Agata told the Polish daily Dziennik that she never regretted her pregnancy. “The news I was going to be a mother made me feel fortunate. I was so happy because I would know what it was like to be a mother and I would give my husband something good from myself,” she said.
