It's every parent's nightmare - discovering that your beautiful baby is seriously ill.
And it's a nightmare that turned into reality for my next guest who discovered when her daughter Mairah was just 15 months old that she had stage 4 neuroblastoma - that's a type of childhood cancer. Now Mairah has undergone chemotherapy but due to the aggressive nature of the form of cancer, she still requires further treatment.
And the type of treatment she needs isn't offered in South Africa yet and Mairah's family have been advised to seek help in North Carolina, in the US.
Sara-Jayne speaks Mairah's mother, Jenna Cook.
