After struggling for years with infertility, RaShae Tillotson and her husband were overjoyed when their twins were born. But only three months after her birth, RaShae's daughter began showing symptoms of a serious illness. 

As RaShae Tillotson watches her two children play, she recognizes once again, 'This is a sunset moment,' an overwhelming feeling of love for her family. Nothing special has to take place for her to stop and be grateful for the family she has.

Just six years ago, that family was only a dream—a dream that seemed to continually be crushed. After experiencing the loss of multiple babies, Tillotson didn't know if she could continue trying to start a family, but she found hope.

"I just had this crazy drive in me that I knew I was going to be a mom," Tillotson said. "There was nothing that was going to stop me."

But after her dream of a family came true, Tillotson was told her baby girl had cancer.
