ALEXIS commented on Katherine Ellis's group Losing Someone to Cancer
"Hi Michael, I can definitely relate to feeling lost. It has been a little over 2 months since I lost my husband to complications from treatment for acute myeloid leukemia. I mostly feel numb and like a part of me is missing. I go to work, have…"

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.…"

Profile Information

About Me:
I am 42 years old. I have a 19 year old daughter.
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. His death was a bit of a shock because his cancer was in remission and he had been doing good up until a couple months before he died.

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.
