My husband, age 53, passed away on June 24 from Adenocarcinoma of the gastricintestional system. He was diagnosed on Feb 14 and only lasted 4 mos. He lost 75 lbs in that 4 months and only weighed 95 lbs at his death.

This is a terrible time for any of us who lose loved ones to this terrible disease. My prayers are with all of you caring for your loved ones.

My father also died of adenocarcinoma only 7 weeks after diagnosis. He also lost alot of weight, he was down to approx 85 lbs. I was glad he didn't linger and suffer long term. Please read in gallery "May I GO Now". It really made me feel better. Sorry for last entry -- oops.
