There are no words to describe the feeling you get when you hear that word ‘cancer’. A feeling of dread and despair coupled with desperation, fear of the unknown and panic. The room starts spinning, your heart starts racing and you start sweating, you can hear what the doctor is saying but the words are not quite sinking in. It is a confusing and scary time!
Six weeks before, we welcomed a beautiful baby boy into our family. We named him Jordan Ashley. He was a perfect 7lb 9oz with a head full of dark hair and the most gorgeous blue eyes. He did not waste any time entering this world with labour and delivery lasting only 1 ½ hours. Three days later, we brought him home and began life with a newborn. His big brother, Nathanael, was as proud as a big brother could possibly be. We spent every day doting on our new little bundle of joy.
