Fighting Cancer, Loving Life - Alannah Sheehan


Kids & Family

We get one magical life - it's our job to live it, and live it well. This week our host Sinead O'Moore is joined by Alannah Sheehan a mum of three who earlier this year was diagnosed with terminal cancer but somehow has learned a new level of appreciation and happiness as she lives her life worth fighting for. This most devastating news has taught Alannah incredible life lessons and here she shares them with us. This week last year, Alannah was on top of the world, her third child and first baby girl Phoebe was born. By March, she was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme a rare incurable cancer with only a 50% chance of surviving past 2 years.I can’t find the words to sing enough praise for Alannah Sheehan. I can’t explain why every single person must listen to her talk.I can’t ever thank her enough for her words and perspective which have changed how I will forever appreciate and prioritise my health.Read more about Alannah’s story here. This show is kindly supported by WaterWipes – an essential support for everymum.As creators of the world's purest baby wipes, containing only two ingredients, 99.9% water and a drop of fruit extract; WaterWipes are purer than cotton wool and water and winners of 3 National Parenting Product Awards 2020 including Best Baby Wipes.
