      Hi hope you are well, hoping everything is going well for you and your family and you have only received the best prognosis at your appointments just letting you know 5 months in for us was Hard and it got much worse before it got better.. At one point my partner had lost all his hair, weight and developed a blueish gray tinge to his skin.. He looked days away from.. 11 months later and he’s bounced back he’s back to normal save a few days of weakness..one lady once told me miracles happen..her husband was going through treatment and we met in the TV room of the cancer ward.. I clung to those words and found comfort and strength in them, funny how a few words could do such amazing things I told myself this everyday each morning and it happened! And I could not show this lady the appreciation I have for her or those few words which kept me going..but it was true and miracles do happen I hope you can find some comfort In them and know that 1000 percent anything is possible my partner was diagnosed with stage 3 DHL lymphoma a rare and aggressive form of cancer and his chance of survival was slim.. He went back to work today light duties of course happy to be back to it against all odds he responded spectacularly to treatment and only has 3cm scar tissue to show for it all so please keep strong and keep the faith and don’t forget MIRACLES DO HAPPEN!! 🙂

        Having gone through supporting a loved one through cancer and the treatments required I can only advise that my partner needed all the support and love in the world when going through treatments. I could never have left him alone to deal with this he was a mentaly not coping he needed constant reassurance and support he needed me to stay positive for him and keep his spirits up..otherwise his dark thoughts would have enveloped him and taken him to some dark and scary places that is only the half of it physically he could not do much for himself and the chemo made him nauseous all day long cooking for him self was an impossibility .. I would not wish going through cancer with out loved ones around on my worst enemy….
