debmc Posted June 17, 2003 Share Posted June 17, 2003 A year ago, someone asked me to buy a candle for the Relay for Life and dedicate to someone I knew who had cancer. I said I would buy a candle but I didn't know anyone with cancer. Ironically, Father's Day Weekend, last year, my husband went for a chest x-ray as he thought he had a chest infection and our long journey into Cancer Land began. After he had the first biopsy, the Dr. took me aside (husband still out and no results back yet) and told me it was probably cancer and he would probably have a year to live. Last Friday night, my husband, one of our daughters, our dog and I walked the first lap of the Relay for Life with the other cancer survivors. Its been a long hard year. My husband couldn't be operated on because of the position of the tumor and he had chemo and radiation. People dropped us. He got pneumonia and radiation pneumonitits. He is now doing well. He is back at work and bought a motorcyle just because he always wanted one. We are enjoying everyday now and are not putting off things (1) until we're older (2) the kids are grown (3) we have more money etc etc. I pray for each and everyone of you and for everyone up against this devastation disease.
