‘Robin, come sit with me. Right now. Just stop for a minute.’ I didn’t. 8 months later, he was gone.’: Wife loses husband to cancer shortly after giving birth, hopes his legacy will ‘save another drowning soul’

‘”You shouldn’t have come. This isn’t a good place for our newborn.’ Yes, but I couldn’t leave my husband in the ICU alone. ‘Maddie is so little, and you are breastfeeding. I’ll be okay. Take her home.’ He insisted I get some sleep. The next morning, I got the phone call. ‘We will talk when you get here.’ I hung up the phone and said to myself, ‘He has cancer.’ I cried the entire way to the hospital.”
