Verity's Special Day
Verity was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma at just 32 years old. As a full-time mum, family life changed overnight. Her Special Day was a chance to finally have some fun and spend time with her family again.

Our reasonably carefree life was turned upside down instantly. Managing three weekly chemo sessions was really tough, especially with two little ones.
