“I’m going to Heaven, you stay here with Dad”

Italian mother Chiara Corbella, age 29, died of cancer on June 13, 2012. Chiara is being compared to a Roman Catholic Saint, Gianna Beretta. After losing her two older children to birth defects shortly after their delivery, Mrs. Corbella was thrilled when she became pregnant again in 2010, but she began a remarkable journey when she was diagnosed with cancer shortly afterward.

She finally delivered a son Francisco on May 30, 2013, but not before the aggressive cancer had claimed her right eye.
