Terminally-ill grandmother learns the sex of her unborn grandchild in emotional ultrasound
An emotional video of an unimaginably difficult moment has been captured in Colorado as a pregnant woman determined the sex of her unborn baby with her mother, who was battling terminal cancer.
Taylor Masilotti (26) joined her mum Donna Callender (58) in her hospital bed and the pair received the happy news that she was expecting a baby girl.
However, the moment was tinged with sadness as Donna was battling stage four lung and brain cancer and passed away three days after the scan.
Speaking to Today.com, Taylor said: "I'm so thankful I had somebody record it for me because I want to be able to show it to my little girl when she comes in this world.
"It's a memory that I will never forget. It's very special to me."
"I had gone through a lot of stuff and was told that I couldn't even get pregnant, so we were so excited,'' she said.
The moment was captured by Taylor’s boyfriend Cotey Keith.
