"They were shocked at how much it had spread within the two week scans, and for me, it was hard to watch her experience such a huge portion of her life", she said. I wasn't able to move around, my family used to have to assist me to go to and from the bathroom, it was really being able to see your children deteriorating in front of them not knowing that you know mommy is not going to be here.
