A new mom in Syracuse, New York gave birth to twins and was diagnosed with cancer right after. According to a video report by GeoBeats, the 26-year-old woman is fighting for her life after being diagnosed with an "extremely rare pregnancy-related cancer."

Jenna Hinman went into premature labor (at 30 weeks) on March 3 and still has not had the chance to hold her newborn daughters. Within minutes of giving birth, Hinman's breathing became labored and she started coughing up blood. She was soon diagnosed with Choriocarcinoma -- her body is riddled with tumors.

Hinman was transferred to a different hospital and placed in a medically induced coma. Her husband has set up a GoFundMe page in hopes of raising money for his wife's treatment. So far, 1/10 of the $1,000,000 goal has been raised and thousands of people have been donating to try and help this family.
