Who could have imagined that in our newlywed stage of marriage our vows would be tested, promises
we made were it, “Through sickness and health” Til death do us part.
My marriage is being put to the test today, As I sit back and wonder why us why my husband, I come to
the conclusion this is god this is my testimony, this is our story, I'm standing frail while trying to remain
strong, My heart aches for not only my husbands well being but for my own fragile state, suddenly to be
reminded again this is god and this is my testimony I will stand and be strong for the both of us for I am
god and for god is my world.
Hello to all and hello to all who shall read my testimony. Please understand as individuals we do not get
to pick our seasons of trail it actually chooses us. My name is Tamara Jackson clement I am a newlywed
of seven months, Orlando clement is this amazing man who I knew in my previous younger adult days.
Who is now my amazing husband after finding me eleven years later Orlando has truly put the twinkle of
love back in my eyes, love does exists because of this amazing man. Orlando Is my absolute hero and
always has been Orlando is even more of my hero since becoming diagnosed on 12/2/17 with bleeding on the brain, brain tumor, lung cancer all at once. Our life came to a sudden halt. Where did this start? What
we thought was a common flu with four different doctors telling us my husband is sick with a viral
infection to treating my husband for his viral infection to going back to the hospital to then tell my
husband he has COPD to then go back home to get treated for COPD. And last but not least my husband
was showing the same previous symptoms, headed back to the hospital to then get diagnosed with unspecified pneumonia. We figured my husband symptoms made sense Pneumonia was my husbands diagnose that fitted all his symptoms. They treated my husband for pneumonia, my husband was feeling a little bit better but I still had to make him eat and drink water and we talked about my husband going back to work the following week . But for whatever reason I have been feeling a bit sick, brushing it off with stress and maybe my cycle was coming so i thought .
The night of 12/2/2017 2am turned for the worst my husband became very weak fell to the floor I thought I lost him I called 911 and they rushed him to the emergency room, Finally all the test from the blood work came back no more than an hour later and we found out what was really going on since day one of the so called viral infection diagnose. They found out my
husbands blur vision, weakness, sleeping all day,headaches,no appetite was caused by bleeding on the brain was all do to a growing tumor. 12/3/2017 My husband was rushed into brain surgery to remove the tumor, the surgery was a success, my personal state of mind was
in bad shape I was really feeling sick, trying to ignore my symptoms while trying to remain strong for my
husband. My husband and I were in the hospital for 9 days after his bran surgery, my husband looked good
and had an huge appetite and walying good. We thought the storm came and went. Our lives were upside down. My health was declining something was going on I went into see my doctors to only find out I had a ruptured cyst that burst and was causing me pain. I healed from my ruptured cyst to find out later me and Orlando was pregnant on 11/17/2017 we were both ecstatic I rejoiced in joy we have been planning to have our first child but to only be told I would never be able to have children. I was pregnant I was truly happy the happiest I've ever been.
Orlando was due to get out the hospital but before leaving we had to get his test results The doctors ran more test to make sure my husbands tumor was not cancerous. Days later the doc came with the news, My husband has stage 4 lung cancer.
Our lives has changed. We tried to rejoice in our pregnancy to wake the morning of 11/19/2017 i woke with pain in my lower right abdomen, I lost my unborn child, I was caring etopic I was rushed into surgery I had to have one of my right Fallopian tube removed due to scar tissue. I was told my chances of having another child may not be possible without invitro fertilization. My heart broke even more I couldn't understand why all this trauma back to back and still trying to deal with all this.
I am here to share my story and to grow from it. Myself and my husband are here for help life has hit us hard
we are both hard working people but have been out of work since 11/10/2017 do to obvious reasons. We are in great help with medical bills my husband needs radiation on his brain along with chemo on his lungs. It's really sad how only parts of his insurance cover parts of treatments. Im so very afraid if my husband does not start his treatment his cancer will soon spread. If anyone can help and donate it would be really appreciated thank you for your donation.
