I don't know if our experience could possibly help someone else, but, I'm hoping that it might. On August 21st, 2006 my life partner was vibrant and healthy. His right shoulder hurt and he had had some heartburn for a couple of weeks. On August 25th, 2006 he was diagnosed with hepatocellular carcinoma and on September 19th, 2006 he died.
The first couple of weeks he was strong enough that we could have tried a clinical trial. The first couple of weeks it was easy to believe that we probably had six months or so to do something. We planned trips. We were going to take a cruise.
By the third week he was very ill.
I miss him very much.
