“My husband and I started dating at the age of sixteen. I told him that someday, somehow I just knew I was going to have twin boys.
Fast forward nine years and we were married but struggling to get pregnant. My husband went in to the doctor to see why we couldn’t have kids and discovered he had blood cancer. He was given one day to bank sperm before needing to start chemo treatment.
After several years of hardship both physically and mentally, my husband came up to me with tears running down his face saying he really wanted to be a father. Later that week, we started the IVF process and ended up with the twin boys we’d always dreamed of!
Having nearly lost his battle with cancer, my husband knows how important every moment is and he truly makes the most of his time with his boys. He puts down everything to play and interact with them.
They look up to him as their real life superhero and I can’t wait to share with them when they get older how he truly is an inspiration.”
