Journalists Andrew Kaczynski and Rachel Ensign open up about losing 9-month-old daughter to rare brain cancer
ABC ^ | 3/9/21

Journalists Andrew Kaczynski and Rachel Ensign endured a loss that no parent should ever have to on Christmas Eve when their 9-month-old daughter Francesca died of complications from a rare pediatric brain cancer.

Prior to being diagnosed with Atypical Teratoid Rhabdoid Tumor, Ensign told "The View" Tuesday that their daughter, lovingly called "Beans," was a "very healthy, happy, lively baby" until she began uncontrollably vomiting one night. A pediatric urgent care identified her symptoms as nothing more than a stomach bug, but parental instincts told Kaczynski and Ensign it "felt like it was more" than a stomach bug.

When they took Francesca to the emergency room, doctors suspected it could be a brain tumor causing her symptoms. "It was just the most horribly devastating moment of our lives," Ensign said.

Two liberal journalists whom lost a live infant due to a tragic disease.

I pray and mourn for their lost infant, and yet they are probably OK with killing a life in the womb.

RIP, little baby girl.

Kaczynski is a vile propagandist who has ruined many lives. I’ll pray for the baby and leave it at that.

He is a despicable human being. I pray he will regain his soul from this tragedy.

I believe this is the guy who doxed the CNN-Trump meme video creator and lead the lynch mob. If he was on fire I would not give him Little Marco’s bottle of water. Sorry for the kid, though.

I worked for decades at a very well known hospital which happened to be right next door to a very well known pediatric hospital.Our hospital didn't have a pediatric service mainly because of what was right next door to us.

As difficult as it was for me to watch an 85 year die...or a 45 year old...or even a 15 year old (15 was our "cutoff" age) there's no way I could watch a little kid die. I would go completely out of my mind.

Politics get suspended the minute you touch the oncologist’s door. Cancer is a grim crawl.

All true, but the statement is likely accurate. Go back one year and they would violently defend their right to terminate that life. To the point they riot in the streets and try to get you fired from your current and any future job if you disagreed with them. Where is the outrage about that?

I have niece who deals with such infants. I don’t know how she does it...but only for her faith...she gets through.

KFILE will go back 35 years in your life to destroy you [if you're not a Commiecrat].

It wouldn't matter to him whether cancer was involved, or not.

I was just going to ask that when I read “journalists” which is like reading “town crier”, a job that does not exist today. They should be more accurate and call themselves “propagandists”.

Yep. My dad was a cop in New York city in the 1960s and 1970s and would go into severe depressions whenever they got calls of a kid dying, murdered, he said the absolute worst was the kids beaten to death by the parents or parent, and he worked in the 1970s which was the absolute worst, the height of the welfare Holocaust created by democrats.

And apparently nothing has changed........
