Alex Lewis was a 33-year-old man coasting through life when suddenly everything changed. One minute he was coming down with a cold, and the next he was being rushed into hospital. That’s when doctors told his partner to prepare for the worst.

Back in 2013 Alex Lewis and his partner Lucy lived in Stockbridge, U.K., with their three-year-old son Sam. At the time, the couple ran a gastropub together, but in November of that year something momentous happened which stopped them in their tracks.
