Emre and Elijah are diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia
Both boys also started with colds that mysteriously never seemed to disappear.
Their fears grew, especially when the spot on Elijah's cheek grew bigger and Emre developed one too.
Blood tests were carried out at Calderdale at the end of February but these failed to reveal anything and they were referred to a dermatologist in Leeds.
It was thought the boys might be suffering from fat necrosis - where the body struggles to break down fat particles.
Ms Duhaney was glad that at long last they appeared to have an answer and her fears began to subside.
However, on 22 April, the vomiting problems became more acute and Nicole was unable to put Emre down without him crying.
She said: 'He was so clingy. I couldn't put him down without him crying. I had to get my mum to hold him while I went to the toilet.'
