The couple was blessed with three sons age ranging from 7 to 12 years during their marriage of almost 18 years. There is not much detail available about her son but her according to her Tweet they accompanied Sally and her husband during their trip to France.

Much like any ordinary family, this family of 5 were blessed, but fate had something else planned for them.

Husband Dies Of Cancer

The tragedy struck when Paul, Carol's husband was diagnosed with rare cancer, the one Steve Jobs had. Paul suffered from a rare form of cancer called Carcinoid tumors which could be cured of cutting the tumor and getting rid of cancer, but in his case, it had spread excessively.

The strong woman that Sally was, she had prepared her three sons for any circumstances. She was very open about the whole thing to the public. In a podcast with a charity named, she confessed how she warned her bereaved sons about their father's situation:

We all go to Church together as a family, so we just talked to them about the fact that Daddy is unwell and Daddy needs special medicine and treatment to get better, but also, that we’re praying for Daddy and we’re trusting in God and believing in Jesus to help Daddy with this sickness.”

She further confronted that letting their children know about the illness was the best approach as they got an opportunity to be a part of the journey as a family. The reporter had Tweeted about a loss in her family member and that she was taking a break from work but had not mentioned that it was her husband.

Ever since the 38-year-old lost her husband, she was witnessed being vocal and helping people who were going through the same dreadful journey.
