Hello everyone, this is my first time on here and i look forward to any support and suggestions that you may have. For starters let me let you no that it is my wife who has cancer not I. I come on here trying to figure out were to go from everything that we have tryed. If you have noticed the title it says fighting alone, when I say that I mean just me and her. I no its no one elses problem but ours but I thought maybe family and friends would show some kind of support. Not that I ever expected it, I just thought eventually someone would call, visit, send a card or do something but nota, nothing, zilch. In a way it has been ok because since we been together that is the way it has always been 10 years and counting. Now let me get to my wife. It all started in july when she found a lump on her breast. We went and got it checked and sure enough it was breast cancer. The doctors told her that a double mastectomy was for the best, so we agreed and had it done. The next step was to see if cancer has spread and it has to her back, hip, and rib. Devastating news for us. So far much hasn't been done but the doctors are either considering surgery, chemo, radiation, or all 3. Right now we are willing to do whatever the doctors suggest as long as it helps with her pain. That's preety much the jift of it and my only problem is I can't stand seeing my wife suffer. I believe that things would be a little easier if we had the support and income to fight. Things aren't easy especially when were on a fixed income and we have no one for any kind of support and I mean none. In stead family would rather start fighting and arguements like if she never had cancer. They even started with her by calling us a liar and saying she doesn't have cancer until they realized she had surgery. I'm just saying its just not right, she deserves better and its heart breaking to watch her suffer and no one cares accept me. To make things harder she has an autistic daughter that she has to raise in the mean time. Things just haven't been easy and im stuck and don't no how to make it easier for us, especially her. Again I'm sorry for my out poor but any suggestions would be a blessing cause I have tryed giveforward .com facebook and some other things and nothing seems to work.
Thank you for listening
