"Prayers for Jenna," the Facebook page dedicated to Jenna Hinman, who was diagnosed with a rare placental cancer shortly after delivering twin girls in March, published a heart-wrenching message on its page Monday that the 26-year-old had died earlier that day.

"Today our hearts are broken," the Facebook post read accompanied by a photo of a sun setting behind the clouds. "We are devastated to inform you that Jenna has suddenly passed away after a courageous two month fight against cancer."

"We kindly ask that Jenna's family and loved ones have the opportunity to mourn with privacy," the post continued. "Jenna fought this disease with everything she had and we are so proud of her amazing courage and for blessing the world with two precious little angels. Until we meet again, we love you, gorgeous girl."

Soon after Hinman gave birth to her twin daughters, Kinleigh Ann Hinman and Azlynn Mary Hinman, on March 3 by emergency C-section, attending physicians diagnosed her with stage 3 choriocarcinoma, ABC News reported.

Choriocarcinoma is a quick-growing form of cancer that occurs in a woman's uterus in which cells grow at a rapid rate within the tissue that would generally form the placenta, according to the National Library of Medicine.

According to the American Cancer Society, Choriocarcinoma affects between .002 and .007 percent of pregnant women. Of those diagnosed with the rare cancer during their pregnancy, about 25 percent miscarry, ABC News noted.

The twin girls were born premature at 30 weeks weighing 2 pounds, 9 ounces, and 3 pounds, 6 ounces, and reportedly remained in neonatal intensive care for six weeks. Despite their rough start, the twins are said to be thriving according to sources close to the family who posted on the "Prayers for Jenna" Facebook page.

The Facebook announcement led to a stream of equally heart-breaking responses from friends of Hinman.

"Jenna did not lose her battle with cancer. She beat the cancer in a way almost no one ever does," one friend wrote.

"She defeated the cancer before it ever hurt the two most beloved people to her in the world," the post continued. "She fulfilled her role as a mother in a way almost no one else could have. Her body took the blow and saved her children."

In an interview with ABC News last month, the deceased mother's husband, U.S. Army Sgt. Brandon Hinman, told the network, "She's probably the most kind-hearted person I ever met. . . She would go out of her way for anyone, give them the shirt off her back."
