    My wife (Lydia) was diagnosed with breast cancer in Dec. Of 2014. She had surgery, chemo,and radiation. We were supposed to be going to one of the best cancer hospitals in WV, but in 3 years of never missing an appointment and the only thing more that was done was to do blood work (no scans of any kind) the cancer returned (was found when our local hospital was looking for a kidney stone). By the time it was discovered it had spread to her liver, lungs, and bones. She was given 1-2 years to live, but God chose to take her sooner. She went home to Him July 25th 2018. I knew that when the time came it would be hard, but there are times that I don't think I am going to make it. We were married for over 33 years and looking forward to many more. If you believe in prayer, please say one for me.

    So sorry for your loss. We lost my mom way too young on a removable cancer... The further away from it, the more I realized that by the grace of God she was spared years of suffrage and only the living are cheated for time. My thoughts are with you.

    Beekeeper, so very sorry for your loss of Lydia, as I know how hard some of this is. My Debbie was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer last November and just completed chemo, surgery and radiation. If you want to talk sometime send me a PM with your number. Hang in there buddy, tough times never last but tough people do.

    Praying for you. What a comfort we have as believers that she is pain free and in the presence of God.
    A good friend of ours lost her battle with cancer and her husband was helped by a grief support class at a nearby church.
