A mother who had beaten cervical cancer TWICE, including once while pregnant, died of heart failure just a day after giving birth to twins.

The Fresno, California Mom, Jamie Snider, gave birth to twins Camila and Nico on March 16.

During the pregnancy, Snider was going through chemotherapy to overcome an advanced form of cervical cancer.

Snider also has two older daughters that are mourning her death.

She had previously battled cancer and lost an ovary in the process. While pregnant, she learned the cancer had returned and did what she could to fight it, according to her brother, Chris Snider.

They couldn’t give her too much chemo because it would affect the development of the babies,” he told KGO-TV in San Francisco. “She made sure, she made sure those babies would live. She traded her life.”

Despite that, Doctors told her that she had beat cancer for a second time, just in time to give birth via C-section.

At 33 weeks, the babies were born prematurely and weighed only about 3½ pounds. They were, however, healthy, and Snider was a proud mother.

In order to ensure she would have a long life with her family, Snider had a radical hysterectomy to remove any remaining cervical cancer.

Sadly, Snider died a day after giving birth and having the surgery, not of cancer – but of heart failure.

What gives me peace in my heart is she got to see those babies and hold them and be with them a little bit,” her friend Larina Campanile told KGO-TV.

The twins have been discharged out of the hospital and are with members of Snider’s family until they can move to New Hampshire with their father and older sisters.
