It’s only 12 months since a routine check-up at the obstetrician led to the shattering discovery that Sally had aggressive, fast-growing, stage three breast cancer.

At what should have been the happiest time of her life, heavily pregnant with the IVF baby she’d longed for, she was suddenly facing a desperate struggle.

"It was like I was walking through a field of daisies and someone hit me with a baseball bat from behind.

"I didn’t see it coming," recalls the Today Tonight reporter, tenderly cuddling her ‘little ray of sunshine’ Annabelle, with Marcus by her side.

But now she’s been given the all-clear, she will never let her little girl go.
