For my girls, Emma and Ava. You save me, everyday.
And for everyone who volunteered so much love and support along the way. You know who you are. I am eternally grateful.
In the summer of 2013, the trajectory of my life, and that of my young family, abruptly and irreversibly changed in a most unexpected and cruel way. A storm blew in from the shadow's of Life, that forced us on a journey that we neither anticipated, nor were in anyway prepared for.
A journey that would expose us to the most acute brands of suffering, vulnerability and fear. Whilst at the same time, imbued with extraordinary moments of courage, generosity and love.
We're still standing. And this is the story of what happened.
