“My husband is my number one supporter. He is 100% there for me.
The week of chemo he takes the whole week off, so he’s there for the kids. Then, the next 2 weeks he worked out of the house. My dear friend set up a website to keep everyone connected, and my husband writes a whole journal on there about me.
He’s been doing a great job.”
“This cancer has brought our family together.
The kids have to step up a little more than they used to. I think we realize that we can’t take each other for granted like we used to.
I don’t know if we used to, but you are just more aware.
My children have been great through all of this. We are very honest with them. We tell them exactly what is going on. We don’t hide anything. And I’ve become stronger.”
“I’m not really scared of all this. I just want it over and I’ll do whatever it takes to have it be over.”
