I just need to thankyou for your post. I was just given the news my boyfriend of a short time has been diagnosed with Cancer. He has not told me what kind . I am letting him choose to tell me at his own pace. He told me he does not want to talk and wants to be alone. But thank you.. I know it is a short time together but he told me he wanted to marry me .. I feel the same too.. its so hard.. I lost my ex 10 years ago to cancer and put the pieces of my life back .. I told him i am here for him and lets fight together.. Your words at the end gave hope.. I guess have faith in what is ahead..
i am curious how things are going. I am in the same situation and it is really hard to know what to do. Do we continue to reach out and let them know every day we care. what is the best way to let them have us go through this journey with him
I have a strong bonding with my brother. He has tongue cancer and lymph node on the back of his tongue. 3 weeks radio and 3 sessions of chemo he is halfway through treatment.
He is still full ability to do things for himself and carried on working until last week. But now he has trouble swallowing. He doesn’t have a family to look after him and I have a family to look after, that is why I am finding it hard to manage and look after it.
I have just been told I have cancer and don’t really know much else for sure. I do know that already it’s a very lonely gurney. One thing that dose keep rolling round in my head is how those I hold close will be affected not only by my passing if that happens, but more so watching the decline. If you think you can handle that chase him. I don’t know but it I believe it will be a life changing time for you if you do though. I am very lucky I have someone who will be there with me no matter the outcome. Still either way how do you ask any one to watch you be consumed by this.
Dont know if that helps.
