Hey Latnem So sorry to hear about your wife. How far along is she in her treatment? What type of pain is she suffering that she is looking for relief from? Sending healing thoughts to both of you Amber

Hi Lantnem, my mum went through the rigours of tongue cancer treatment: the pain, the discomfort etc. It's tough, it's horrible not only for the sufferer but for the carer/s who sit and watch. Each day, each small step is larger than the joy of watching one land on the moon!! Hang in there. 5 year on, my mum - though changed has survived and doing the best she can. Her mantra is : this is now my life, I've a life to live. I'm amazed at her strength as 5 years ago it was just all too hard for everyone.
