Warracknabeal’s Mason and Finley Roche have already faced more than their fair share of adversity in their short lives. Born prematurely at 29 weeks, the twins won their fight for survival. Eighteen months later they have a new challenge – cerebral palsy.
Keshia and Peter Roche know their sons face an uphill battle, but know they will meet it head-on. Mrs Roche said the boys never complained.
“They are very happy little boys – and very cheeky,” she said.
Mason and Finley were born in Brisbane and delivered early after developing twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome.
“It was an extremely stressful pregnancy,” Mrs Roche said. “We were told from 13 weeks on there were a few complications. They said we were at a very, very high risk of twin-to-twin transfusion.”
