I wanted to join this forum to reach out to other wives supporting husbands through cancer diagnosis, treatment and after. After 10 years of good check up results and scans, my wonderful man got the dreaded news, "There is a mass". My head just swam, I found it hard to breathe and of course just clung on to my husband. He'd been here before, 11 years ago, it just didn't make sense. All the questions swimming through my mind. But just like the 1st time, I swung into action, found out what was planned, when treatment would start, and helped my man. No 2 people react to their diagnosis the same, but I have supported my husband by caring for his wellbeing, he is too busy fighting to be worried about when appointments are, when to take medicines and all day to day stuff. BUT, I have always consulted him as to if he is ok with how I am managing things for him. Not assuming that he is incapable or too tired. Basically I just want to say, STAY POSITIVE as much as allowed STAY STRONG, both of you PLAN FOCUS on small wins and good news LAUGH, it does kinda help. BE THANKFUL,
