A woman from Northern Ireland battling terminal breast cancer, Ciara Haggan, is giving her kids the chance to celebrate one final Christmas with her.
The woman who has only a few weeks to live has received help from people as almost £10,000 (GHc73,934) has been raised to make sure she and her daughters enjoy their final days together.
According to the woman who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2016, Christmas has always been their favourite, Belfast Telegraph reports.
YEN.com.gh gathers that the woman is determined to keep fighting until the end to make every day as special as possible.
The 38-year-old woman said: "My mindset now is that I want my kids to live each day like there's no tomorrow because there might not be for me.
"I wanted so much to give the kids a final Christmas Day to remember."
Ciara said some of the money has been set aside to give her daughters a proper holiday with their uncle in 2021.
She added: "I'll be gone before the real Christmas arrives."
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh previously reported that Ida Price of Louisiana beat the odds after fighting off COVID-19 while at the same time battling cancer, making her more of a medical miracle.
The 89-year-old grandma learnt she had coronavirus in late March 2020 after a relative tested positive.
Not long after, she was tested and was diagnosed with COVID-19, though she showed no symptoms.
Price said she didn’t have a fever and never had a cough. Neither did she experience any chest pains.
After testing positive for the COVID-19, her children moved quickly to bring her to Houston from her home in Louisiana and checked her into United Memorial Medical Hospital because she was already battling colon cancer.
