A Lancashire mum who died from a brain tumour survived long enough to see her ‘miracle’ baby celebrate his first birthday.
The heartbreaking story of Fleetwood mum Nicola Abbott, 29, who died on Saturday pulled the heart strings of our audience.
But through the tragedy the family have pulled together, with her brother brother Graeme, 30, and his wife Christina, 29, now raising Nicola's son Archer as one of their own.
After Nicola’s funeral, Archer will return home with them under an arrangement known as ‘special guardianship’.
And in three years will be formally adopted.
Here is how you reacted to the sad news
