A 29-year-old mother tragically died only four months after giving birth to her ‘miracle’ baby girl.
Only days after miracle IVF baby Billie Mae was born, Taylor Johnston from Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula learned that she had cancer.
The new mom was diagnosed with terminal bone marrow cancer, her family said in a GoFundMe page.
“Our beloved Taylor gained her angel wings and is now watching over us,” the page read.
Taylor had just tied the knot with her husband Jesse last year and they underwent two rounds of IVF before finally falling pregnant. After 25 hours in labor, she gave birth to her miracle baby via emergency c-section. But during the surgery, midwives found a polyp in her cervix.
10 days later, results revealed that the growth was cervical cancer and it had spread to her bone marrow.
Heartfelt tributes poured in for the mom, remembering her as a unique and bright young woman.
One said: “My beautiful, beautiful Tay, you were the sunshine, you were everything all at once. “You had a lightness about you that no one will ever replace. My heart breaks for your baby girl and the man of your dreams. My heart is shattered.”
Another wrote: “My heart is so heavy. Tay, my beautiful best friend .The sunshine in our lives, I am truly lost for words. “This world is so cruel to take you, but I know you can rest easy now. I love you. I’ll miss you every single day.”
A third said: “Another beautiful soul taken way too soon. Rest in peace, Taylor Johnston, your forever smile, contagious energy and kind spirit will live on.”
