We lost our granddaughter in October 2009 due to a still born birth. Shortly afterwards the doctors discovered that our daughter Emma had non-Hodgkin lymphoma, previously dismissing her symptoms as pregnancy related. We eventually lost Emma in January 2010, aged 33. She had been bedridden all the time despite trying to walk, and eventually developed septicaemia. When we found out our eldest daughter was pregnant in December 2012 we decided to drag ourselves out of the doldrums and get fit for...

Finally leaving hospital after months of chemo, TBI and dreaming of life outside of hospital can be an extremely surreal experience. The initial excitement is massive.
