I am a 2 1/2 year durvivor of ovarian cancer. My husband is currently battling Stage IV Renal Cell Cancer. I would like to talk to others who have been double slammed.
WHile not a survivor myself, I am a caregiver now dealing with my husbands third cancer, lung, which has spread to his brain. Fortunately the two previous ones we beat, small bowel lymphoma and prostate cancer. He is taking chemo and has two more treatments and then he'll be watched. He finished 15 consecutive days of radiation for the brain lesions and that seemingly worked. HOORAH!!! And the chemo seems to be working as lung lesions have shrunk. I don't know what to tell you other then gather ALL around you for hugs, prayers and positive thoughts.
I am in a different type support group (email type) and my hubby received over a 100 cards from these members and I can't tell you what a positive that was for him.......and me!
Lean on anyone and everyone you can......this disease can be beat!!!
Positive hugs headed your way!
I had emergency surgery for stage three colon cancer March 6, 2002. April 2, 2002 my only child was diagnosed with leukemia. January 18, 2003 my husband died of prostate cancer but was supposed to survive. I am now left alone, sick and no income on top of everything else. With no family to turn to and friends that have moved on with their lives I know the feeling of being overwhelmed. I am simply to the place where I must focus on what I can do and let go of as much of the rest as I possibly can. It varies from day to day and moment to moment. Sometimes I feel like both of my legs have been amputated and I need to figure out how I am suppose to get around. Sometimes I am numb and at other times the pain is just too much and it makes me wish the cancer would just go ahead and consume me. I don't share this with my son who has leukemia. I try to be strong and keep it
