Lost My Husband Of 19 Years To Cancer

My husband passed in August of 2012. We have two girls ages 12 and 9. His battle with cancer lasted a year and then it was over.
I am still amazed at how our lives changed so fast.

It was a year battle, he worked thru much of the chemo so that was helpful to his state of mind and all of ours. He was on hospice at home for 2 months. Was it difficult? only at times, most of it was a positive experience. My girls are doing really well, we try to keep busy but we share our sad times together or at least try to. I have told my girls many times, our lives will never be the same but we will be OK.
It's all so hard but I keep pushing forward and pulling my strength from my girls.

My husband also fought brain cancer for 10 onthhs and then he was gone. we have a beuatiful 14 year old duaghter Life is ahaged very very fast your right. Its a wierd state of mind and alot going through my head all the time I find it helps having a kid i a way because you are forced to be moving forward. But its hard to put it all together and make any senses out of it. when they had cancer all you did was fiht it so you never really accept that they got it in the first place. hte caregiving was so overwheling for us becaues he couudlnt talk or walk prat of the time. I hope yor swasnt pinful. ht e9 year old would be very difficlt i think. MOne n was 13 when it started, but she really matured suring the 2 month hospital stya. well its good to get support and do sothing postve every day i think. YOu take care of yoursel too..

I hope for the better
