Tonight on Missing You viewers meet Emma Doyle and her family as they try to support her from afar while partner Paul goes through treatment for skin cancer.
Emma Doyle (26) left Kilkenny and her parents Joe and Johanne, to move to Perth, Australia in 2014. That year she met partner Paul Hobbs and soon after came the happy news that they were expecting a baby.
But just before their son Klay was born, Paul was diagnosed with stage 4 skin cancer which had spread to his brain. Doctors told him that if his treatment didn’t work, he had a life expectancy of 12 months or less. Emma is a rock of support to Paul, but when times get difficult she calls home to her parents in Kilkenny, for a shoulder to cry on.
