Video: Cancer fighting mum celebrates baby's 100 day milestone

A Lancashire woman who was diagnosed with terminal cancer weeks after finding out she was pregnant has been celebrating a milestone in her baby daughter's life.

Emma Grandison from Longton in Preston was over the moon when she got the news she was expecting her first baby with her husband Ian.

Soon after the 31 year old developed a pain in her side, a further investigation revealed tumours on her liver.

The cancer spread and Emma's illness was diagnosed as terminal.

Despite her pregnancy Emma needed to start chemotherapy.

Erin was born 15 weeks early back in November and weighed just 1lb 10oz.

Her due date was not until mid February.

Erin is still in the neonatal unit but is celebrating being 100 days old:-
