no matter what life throws at him he just gets on with it

written by Lisa Broom

My son Kayden was born at 26 weeks in the back of an ambulance near Oxford. We spent the first two-and-a-half years of his life in three hospitals, miles from our home in Merthyr. Then the doctors told me there was nothing more they could do for him.
