I am new to this site and am looking for people to talk to about not only my cancer, but my husband's recent death due to liver cancer. I survived breast cancer, but it was a very difficult route of two different types of cemotheraphy over a six month period. I was very ill because, as my oncologist put it "your body does not like the treatment". If there was a side affect of the chemo, I had it. But, I survived. One of the reasons was because of the support and care I received from my husband. He never complained about all the trips, sometimes once a week, for treatments. He came to visit me every day when I was in the hospital for various infections when my blood count would go down. I finished my chemo in November of 1999, and have been cancer free as of my last check up in December 2001. Unfortunately my husband, who had been battling bladder cancer since 1998, past away March 9, 2002. He was belately diagonised with liver cancer. I felt at such as loss because I could not help him, when he had spent so much time taking care of me. I get up every morning thankful that I am alive to babysit with my one year old granddaughter. But, I also cry every night because my best friend is not here to share her with me.
