Vanessa Robinson speaks about her life since the death of her two boys in 2010 in tomorrow's Weekend News.
It has been two-and-a-half years since young brothers Chase and Tyler Robinson died from carbon monoxide poisoning in their Mooroopna home.
Since then, their mother, Shepparton’s Vanessa Robinson, has become the public face of media campaigns urging safety and awareness.
But her private journey of dealing with trauma and grief continues.
In the days after her boys’ deaths, while she lay sick in hospital, hurtful speculation circulated about her involvement.
Today, she lives with her own painful physical reminders of the poisoning that killed her boys while they slept.
Now, for the first time, Vanessa has spoken to The News about those terrible events of May 31, 2010 — what happened, how she is coping and what it means for the future.
