This is Max at 5 months old. This is Max the day before we took him to hospital. He looks so happy and well. Can you believe he had stage 4 cancer here? We had no idea. My daughter Robyn turns 5 months in 10 days time, so far everything has been the same, we are now getting into the teething irritability that we blamed Max’s discomfort on. It’s so hard not to compare. Rare isn’t rare when it’s already happened to you. How do you reassure a mother that has already lost a child?
We must spread awareness and count our blessings when our children are healthy.
It could happen to anyone.
