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.

Beautifully written! Following your lives through Lou’s treatment and West’s care should be an inspiration to all who have faced such a challenge in their lives. I always told Alexa that one day this would all be a memory. We are so grateful it is!

Yu are inspiring, Alexa! I loved reading this so much, especially since I just delivered twins a month ago. It’s exhausting and magical at the same time.
