It’s been one whole year since I heard those dreadful words ‘you have cancer’. When you’re going through a difficult time in life, a year can seem like an eternity.
Having gone through 15 months of hospital visits, countless tests, treatments and worries with my son, we were nothing but relieved when his doctor told us that he was doing well and we could extend the time between hospital visits. But life had something else up its sleeve, and only two short days of being happy after the news of Henry’s progress, my life was turned upside down in the one tiny moment I felt that lump. Just like that, the rug was pulled out right from under me. We have spent this past year dealing with my cancer and our 2 year old son getting ill and going through five surgeries.
