Cancer mum's joy at bringing baby home

Emma Grandison with baby Erin

A mum from Preston diagnosed with terminal cancer, weeks after discovering she was pregnant is bringing her baby home from hospital for the first time today.

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.

Despite her pregnancy Emma needed to start chemotherapy. Erin Grandison was born almost 4 months premature back in November weighing less than 2lb and has remained in hospital ever since.

Earlier this year we spoke to Emma about her fight to stay alive for baby Erin. See more here.
