In the end, even though her decision meant she might not survive, Elle chose her son’s life
She decided to delay life-saving cancer treatment in order to carry her son, and in December 2016, she gave birth to Tor Felix Biasotto.

Now, just over two years on from her son’s birth, Elle has shared some incredibly exciting news.
“For the first time since I was diagnosed, my blood cancer is undetectable,” she announced on her Instagram Stories yesterday afternoon.
“I can’t believe it. I never thought this day would come,” she added.
Elle explained that although the cancer is undetectable, she will still have to remain on medication for some time.
“This is the first major milestone to show that the medication has done its job and is working,” she explained.
“I’m just elated – I’m so happy to have got to this point.”
