Four months into her pregnancy, Lorraine Allard was devastated to learn she was in the advanced stages of cancer.

Doctors advised her to have an abortion and start chemotherapy straight away.

Instead, with steadfast courage, she insisted on waiting long enough to give her unborn son a chance to survive, telling her husband Martyn: “If I am going to die, my baby is going to live.”

A caesarean delivery was scheduled at 26 weeks, but Mrs Allard went into premature labour a week before and Liam was born on November 18.

She then started chemotherapy, but died on January 18 – having left her bed a handful of times to cuddle her son beside his incubator.

“Lorraine was positive all the way through – she had strength for both of us,” Mr Allard said yesterday.

“Towards the end we knew things weren’t going well, but she was overjoyed that she had given life to Liam.”

What the husband says about her final moments:

“On the day Lorraine died, she hadn’t eaten for two weeks and couldn’t drink.

“I laid beside her and she was gripping my hand quite tight.

“We were like that for about half an hour. I could feel against my chest that her heart was slowing down. She just slipped away after that. It was very peaceful.

Did the mother want to be known as a sacrificing martyr ?

“When Liam is old enough, I won’t tell him that Lorraine gave her life for him, but I will say she made sure he had a good chance of life.

“She told me she didn’t want him to feel bad about it.”
Its as simple as that!

    Ronaldo became Manchester United’s first-ever Portuguese player. Initially, he requested for the number 28 as his jersey number because he didn’t feel that he could live up to the pressure of previous players such as George Best and David Beckham who wore the number 7 jersey.

The sole difference between this and also the original observe is always that, if you purchased the original one, your pocket would have been empty sustain, however with this replica watch, that will won’t happen as you’d fully grasp this with only $200.
