“We’re taking things step by step, but she’s a strong little soldier and we’re going to battle this all the way. Aren’t we babe?
“We definitely are. We’re going to come out the other end stronger but we just want to say thank you very much for all the love and support. The positive energy and the prayers working so keep them up. Everything that can possibly help, we’re hanging on to at the minute,” he concluded.
