Advertisements 09/05/2017Hi all, I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed. Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.

My experience ! Were do i begging ? I'll start with a summary for those of you that don't like a wall of text and can expand from their as the thread develops. My wife of 22 years died May 25 2016, after battling Breast cancer for 16 years. We raised two kids and saw them gradate and go on to collage. I'm retired now at the age of 45 my wife was 51. I would love to answer questions and frankly it helps me to talk about it. Her battle : diagnosed from the onset stage 4 ( 20% chance of survival for 5 years) , My son was in third grade and daughter was in first grade. Mastectomy right side and chemo and radiation ( with hair loss) : second year reoccurrence , metastasis to bones again chemo and radiation ( with hair loss) : 7 years later more metastasis to bones again chemo and radiation ( with hair loss) : 6 years later metastasis to bones again chemo and radiation ( with hair loss) : 1 year later metastasis to spine (c4) Quadriplegic four months later deceased. We were living the dream even with cancer in our face all the time. Both of us had careers and made a good living. We had reached the point were she was traveling internationally with me and my work while she worked from the internet ( seeing the world and getting paid to do it). We were in Guam when the last reoccurrence happened. The doctors advised us to get off the Island as soon as possible (just after having family gathering for xmas in Guam). I used up all my vacation, sick time, and FMLA that was available. I had to return to work in order to keep the insurance turned on. I made a few trips per month to the west coast and back for two months (flying back on days off , 8 on 6 off schedule ) We managed to get a Road trip in to Mount Ruershmore and back ( the hardest thing her mother and I have ever done). It was close to the end by now all of us could fell it. I flew out for another week of work, it wasn't 24 hours later she passed. I never saw my wife again, she was removed from my home and cremated before I could return. We never talked about the end, we were fighters to the last ( just another "new normal"). I stand today Alone : Sad : and with no purpose Autocharge Postingpage.pdf
