Losing a partner is challenging at any point in your life, but to be a widow with two young children in your early 30’s is particularly difficult.

Abbey with shines through as she discusses with Stephanie her husband, Marcus’ shock bowel cancer diagnosis aged just 34 and how they navigated the next 12 months together, making special memories with their very young children before his passing.

Taking strength from Marcus’ positive outlook on life, and the motto of living each day with kindness and gratitude, Abbey is learning to move forward, keeping her husband’s memory alive for her children but forever reserving a small part of her heart for her soul mate.
