My husband died last Friday. He died peacefully surrounded by his loved ones. He was beyond courageous in the face of his metastatic cancer at the age of 58. I will continue to draw strength and courage from him.

I am deeply saddened by the loss of your husband to this ever so cruel beast. This life or death battle we wage everyday is tragically real with your news. Be assured he thought the world of his caregivers.

for your kind words of sympathy. I will always treasure this website because of the accurate information that is found concerning every aspect of head and neck cancer and for all the supportive, caring people who are always there to hear your concerns.

I wish you all continued courage to face the side effects of this disease and treatment. I wish you courage to face each upcoming scan and of course NED reports.

No one, except those of us who have experienced this type of cancer, can understand what trials have to be faced. That is a huge comfort to know that we speak the same language.

My sincere best wishes to all of you...patients and caregivers!!!

Robin
