Cancer has been unspeakably cruel to the Neave family. Father Colin died of liver cancer just a week ago, mother Claudette is being treated for terminal bone cancer and daughter Elisha is battling ovarian cancer.
Claudette battled breast cancer 15 years ago. Her mother and grandmother both died from the disease.
The family's history of breast cancer led Elisha and her sisters Chrissy and Veronica to be tested for the BRCA2 gene disorder in 2007. All three tested positive for it. The two elder women made the heartbreaking decision to have hysterectomies and their breasts removed. Elisha chose to wait because she wanted to have more children.
Five years later, at age 33, Elisha discovered she had an agressive form of ovarian cancer. She is now battling to prolong her life so she can have more time with her son, Jack, who is 10.
