Karyn Love was diagnosed with breast cancer when she gave birth to her daughter. Despite the challenges she faced, she was still able to fight the disease for 19 months.
She passed away this week. Her family posted a tribute to her on Instagram, where a funeral will be held.
In her post, Love thanked her friends and family for their support throughout her illness. A funeral will be held on December 18 in Brookfield.
To honor her memory, mourners are asked to wear white. The ceremony will begin at 10:30 am.
During her pregnancy, Love revealed that she was seriously ill and feared that she might lose her child due to the illness.
She was rushed to the hospital due to her back pain. A friend noted on a fundraising page that she was told that she needed to undergo an emergency Caesarian section to ensure that her baby would survive.
After giving birth to Billi, Love was diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer. She was told that she would not be able to leave the hospital.
However, she fought back and went through with the treatment. Love started taking hormone blockers and other forms of chemotherapy. She also took part in various forms of meditation and holistic treatments.
According to a friend, Love spent her time in the NICU giving Billi skin-on-skin time. She couldn’t wait to bring her home.
The funds that were raised for her were used to pay for her medical expenses and the nannying expenses she had to cover while she was undergoing treatment.
