Losing Someone to Cancer

This is for anyone who has lost somone to cancer. I lost my adopted Mom to breast cancer some years ago. She was everything I could have asked for. She loved me because I was just me. She also loved my family and children as if they were her own.See More

ALEXIS replied to Jim Horvath's discussion How do people find something positive every day after the loss of their spouse?
"Jim, I am also new to this group and to this experience. I lost my husband of 20 years a little over a month ago. I too worry about how to be there four our 19 yr old daughter. As far as how to find something positive each day, that is challenging.…"

About my Loss:
My husband passed away a month ago from complications related to treatment from acute myeloud leukemia. We had been married for just over 20 years but had been together for almost 25 years.

Alexis I am so sorry for your loss, I thought I was a young widow until I read your profile.  There seems to be quite a few passings related to unforeseen complications.  It makes me very upset and scared for other people.  My husbands infection would not respond to antibiotics, who even knew that this was a possibility in this day and age?  And your husband being in remission and doing well prior must have left you speechless.  I am having a hard time getting through a day, I decided to just strive for an hour at a time.  Our daughter is 14 and she is just...angry, all the time.  She thinks I should have stopped crying by now.  I hope your daughter since she is a bit older is offering you the support you need.  God bless and be well.

Feeling alone

I’ve been through a lot. In 2014, my father became officially bedridden on Christmas day due to Frontotemporal dementia and my sister was diagnosed with stage 3 colon cancer. She went through operations, a colostomy bag, and 6 months of chemo. In 2015, my husband’s play went to Broadway, and for that play he was nominated for a Tony award, as was the play itself, the playwright, and 3 of the actors.We went to the Tony award ceremony on June 7, and the next day, out of the blue, he told me he…See More
