My Life: Mum's Last Wish

Confirmed for CBBC on 27 February at 5pm to 5.30pm

Monday 27 February



This episode of My Life, CBBC’s award-winning documentary strand, follows sister and brother Shanti (9) and Kalvin (17) as they try to complete a very special wish list, left by their mother before she passed away from cancer in 2015.

Their mother posted vlogs about her illness and built up a large following on social media. The kids pay homage in their own special way by making a self-recorded film of their progress.

This heartwarming journey challenges the two children to confront their fears and explore the unknown, as they try everything from swimming for the first time to learning about cancer. With the support of their nanny and their extended friends and family, Shanti and Kalvin come to terms with the loss of their mum - but also look towards the future.

My Life: Mum’s Last Wish is a hopeful insight into the reality of childhood bereavement and the power of a family’s love.
