I am married to my husband of 24 years, as well as having two beautiful girls who light up our lives. I am also a bereaved mother of two special angels.
In 1997 our first born son Luke (13 mo) was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma, a common childhood cancer. Whilst he underwent treatment I fell pregnant.
Sadly at 26 weeks I suffered a stillbirth, our lives were shattered, we named our baby, Cody Alan. Then three months later our precious son lost his brave battle at just two years of age. Our world came crumbling down…
In 2012, our eldest daughter Tayla (12) was diagnosed with a rare disease – a type of neuroendocrine tumour called a paraganglioma. Many months later it was discovered it was genetic.
I am continually inspired by the amazing strength and courage shown by other people as they overcome obstacles in their lives.
