Boyfriend Diagnosed With Leukemia

Hey everyone, I just need to vent... My boyfriend has gone through chemo therapy already for leukemia when he was around 14 or 15 years old. Now he has had all the previous symptoms of it when he first had it- it's scaring him, and me as well. He is going to Medical tomorrow on base to get checked out, he just went to bed and I can't stop crying. He talks about how he's not afraid to die and how it'd all be okay if he did. He just doesn't want to hurt me, and we're supposed to be getting married. That was one thing he brought up, he said he was sorry that if he did have it that I'd have a bald husband, and I told him it'd be okay because the high and tight is close enough to being bald anyway. I just don't know what to do, I'm so many states away from him. I can't go to him to take care of him right now... I just feel so helpless... Ladies will you all pray for him? (If you're religious.) If not send good vibes please, I don't know what I would do without J.J...

Aw sweety this is terrible is there any news yet?

Of course I will pray for him. He needs you more than ever, he must be scared, Marine or not Marine. Let him know you are there for him, be positive.

Good luck

He has the same nick name as my fiance. If he is diagnosed with it again he will most likely be sent home, to get treatment, so if home is where you are then at least you will get to care for him and be with him then. I am sure that things will be fine, being a marine he is stronger than ever. Just keep giving him reasons to fight if the results aren't what you hope for. I wish you both all the luck in the world and all my prayers.

I'm so sorry. Ill be praying for you both!
