Mummy, Lots of Love, Faith
Here we meet 22 year old Andrea, whose life was turned upside down when a series of health worries led to the unexpected diagnosis of Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, soon after her marriage to husband John. Talking us through the early stages of her treatment, Andrea explains how her three year old daughter, Faith, plus the added support of her family, gave her the strength and courage to carry on fighting. After nervously waiting on a series of test results, Andrea talks about having chemotherapy and experiencing the side effects of treatment, explaining how difficult it was to face the prospect of losing all her hair. As well as the physical difficulties of chemo, Andrea talks about how emotional it was to see Faith react to the situation, especially not being able to see her as much in the beginning.
