This Mother is Dying, But She’s Making Sure She Will Always Be There for Her Son

Go on, like us, tweet us, pin us, we love it!

Rowena Darby is 33 and mother to a three year old boy, Freddie. Very shortly after Freddie’s birth doctors diagnosed Rowena with bowel cancer. And after a few years of fighting it, the diagnosis is grim. Doctors have told Rowena her cancer is terminal.

So Rowena and her husband, Phil, started preparing for how Freddy would be without her. Freddy obviously doesn’t understand the situation, but they want to ensure that she will be a presence for Freddy forever.

Rowena has been writing him letters, recording her telling stories and singing songs for Freddy and generally trying to leave behind as much as she can for Freddy’s memory. The most heartwarming may be the cards she is leaving. One for each birthday and Christmas through his 21st and even one for his wedding.

There’s obviously a great tragedy to this situation as Freddy will grow up with hardly a memory of his mother. This ingenious idea though of leaving mementoes behind for him will hopefully make up for some of that.
