Grandma with cancer gets to discover grandkid’s gender – while on her death bed

Pregnant Taylor Masilotto’s mother was in her final stages of cancer. But when it was time for her daughter to find out the baby’s gender through an ultrasound, grandma insisted to be present. 

The hospital kindly accommodated the special mother-daughter request, rolling in the ultrasound machine into grandma’s room.

Together Taylor and her mom shared the moving experience. And it was just three days later that grandma died. 

This is a beautiful and yet painful story. A story of love and sorrow.

Taylor Masilotto, from Colorado, USA, was in her twentieth week of pregnancy. She wanted nothing more than for her her mother Donna Callender to be present with her when it ws time for her to have the ultrasound that would identify the baby’s sex, according to the Daily Mail.

Donna, who was in the final stages of brain and lung cancer, was unfortunately too weak and will to join her daughter at the ultrasound examination’s location.

The video has since been seen by over 2.7 million people. Here is how Taylor described the emotional moment:

“Wednesday afternoon was one of my forever favorite memories I got to share with my mom. I got to lay next to her, hold her hand and cry happy tears while we found out the gender of the baby. I can’t thank the hospital enough for allowing this to happen. For allowing me to create my last memory with my mom!” 

Taylor announced on Facebook that she has decided to name the baby Stella Kay. Taylor and her mom had came up with the name Stella together, and Kay was Donna’s middle name.
