As soon as we told our sweet, innocent children that I had cancer we all knew that our lives were forever changed. This was a scary place we were heading towards.

Alex was very quiet. His eyes were watery but he didn’t say a word. So, I hugged Tasza very tight and then I asked Mike to take her and talk to her so that I could be alone with my son.

We reassured both kids that we would keep them informed on everything that we learned at every step of the way. We also made sure they knew how much we loved them both. We told them that this wasn’t anyone’s fault and that cancer can just happen to people. We needed them to know that they could talk to us about this at any time. If they had questions or if they were scared or if they just wanted to talk about it then we were going to be there for them. Always. We were going to get through this together. As a family. Plus my Dad and Sheila would be there for them to talk to if they needed to. They always were anyway – cancer or no cancer.
