I kept reading In December 2016, Danielle Dick was 32 years old, married to Tyler and the mother of Taylor, one year old.

There were not many options, he had to decide between an aggressive treatment against his illness that could stretch his life for at least five years but could affect his pregnancy (which had already taken 17 weeks) or prioritize the lives of the babies that were coming and put at risk yours. He did not think too much. He put his children as a priority and rejected the treatment. She gave birth to the twins Colby and Reagan, who barely weighed 1.4 kilograms, but soon recovered. His illness was already advanced so from that moment the doctors explained he could only get worse if he did not undergo radiotherapy. He did not care and he played for his children.
