A couple’s worst nightmare came to life when they were both diagnosed with terminal cancer recently.
Now, they both face leaving their young children without any parents. According to media reports, 38-year-old Adam Graveley met his beautiful Australian wife, 39-year-old Caitlin while they were traveling Down Under. After securing a great job, Adam proposed his love to Caitlin, after which they both soon tied the knot.
After getting married, they had two children and life was going great.But that all came to a sudden standstill when they received the worst possible news from their doctor.
Both members of the couple were diagnosed with stage 4 of cancer, which is the terminal stage.The couple received the news just 3 months apart from one another and it was absolutely heartbreaking.
Today, the pair lives in Perth and are faced with the worst possible prospect of leaving their children alone, without any parents. Their kids include 2-year-old Thea and 4 months old Fearn.
Caitlin explains how she was diagnosed in November with Stage 4 Bowel cancer. And that was right after she suffered from intense pain, which she wrongly assumed was due to her pregnancy. On the other hand, Adam was tragically diagnosed with the final stage of pancreatic cancer on the 4th of February too.
Today, the family is urging others to get their screenings done at an early age to help get a grip on the disease if any. Moreover, they hope and wish their story raises enough awareness on aggressive cancers from the start, especially those that begin below the age of 40 years.
Adam’s sister who lives in the UK mentioned how she can’t visit her brother or his wife due to the travel restrictions in the country. Hence, the earliest they can visit is probably April end. Currently, a fundraiser was set up to help support the family as they go through treatment.
