For Diane Thornton, her diagnosis cut her family's income in half. Her children aged 14 and 17, she said, immediately felt the impact.

"We took a massive hit to our income. The kids stopped extracurriculars. We couldn't afford to pay for music lessons."

But, she says of her children, "they're incredibly resilient."

"We've been upfront about my diagnosis. They understand what is happening. I'm worried about them and they're worried about me. What scares me most is that I'll forget to keep worrying."
