I have joined a group of phenomenol ladies called "The Mourning Dawns" who have lost thier husbands to Ec.
The reason I am writing is that WE HAVE to get the word out what a deadly disease this is. We must start catching this in the early stages not at stage 4 like we seem to be seeing more of.
I may seem like an alarmist to my friends and others but after losing Vince I have realized it is my responsibility to make people aware of this cancer. So many people are so blase about it. It won't happen to me.
Well if it can happen to Sherri's Jim and My Vince, both non -smokers , non-drinkers, and exercise nuts BELIVE ME it can happen to anyone.
This hit me so hard reading about this poor woman losing not one but 2 spouses this way.She even said not much has changed in 10 years. The surgury is the same(in most cases), chemo the same, losing weight and all the rest of the horrible side effects. Thats because the general public and MOST drs don't know that much about it.
I love all of you
