40-y.o. widow looking for people alike

I'm a 40 y.o. window,  lost my beloved husband to bowel cancer two months ago, lost my first child (stillborn) 3 weeks after his father. I would have loved to have my own kids.

I am lost and looking for people alike to talk.

Sometimes family struggles to understand. 

 

Please be gentle and kind to yourselves.

Take care.

Hi butterfly,

I am so very sorry to hear your story. How painful for you. 

I was diagnosed with bowel cancer when I was 40 too.

I have been lucky enough to have two children.

 

How are you going?

Are you ok?
