Rachel Hunter shares her heartbreak over mum's battle with 'hideous disease'
Rachel Hunter has taken to Instagram to share her mother Janeen's battle with cancer.
The 47-year-old posted a touching photo holding her mum's hand, and one of her son, Liam, asleep on a hospital floor.
"Having laid next to you all night, my heart breaks in pieces with the pain you are in," Hunter said in a post on Instagram on Mother's Day.

Hunter said she and Liam sleep at the hospital at night, making nightly calls to her daughter Renee to keep her updated.
"It's a time to process the grief," she said.
"An incredibly special time to nurture, listen, love and devote to Mum."
✨🌙✨ Liam Sleeping on Nights. ✨I've decided to share a little of this journey we are going through with Mum. Liam & I sleep here at night, as many have before to be with their sick loved ones, while the rest of the family gets rest for what the next day might bring. The night calls with Renee to keep her updated on Mums condition. Experiencing the care from the network of nurses & doctors. It's a time to process the grief. An incredibly special time to nurture, listen, love and devote to Mum. 🙏🏼💕❤️🦉
Hunter returned to New Zealand in December to be with her mum and sister Jacqui for Christmas.
