Delivering twins will throw any new mama through a loop. And then, nearly a year later, to get the devastating news that one of them has cancer…well, that’s a turbulent ride that no mother ever wants to find herself on. This was the reality of NYC-based musician Alexa Wilding a little over a year ago. Luckily, the story of Wilding and her identical twin boys, Lou and West, has a happy ending, with Lou being declared cancer-free after treatment. Here, the resilient mama invites us into her home to talk about what living through every parent’s worst nightmare has taught her.
