“My active care has ended and I have now been transferred to a home hospice with my incredible family around me and the focus is on making sure I am not in pain and spending time with them,” the 40-year-old explained in her heartbreaking statement. “Nobody knows how long I have left, but I can’t walk, I sleep most of the time and most of the things I took for granted are pipe dreams,” she continues.
