In April, my wife noticed a lump in her neck. By in June, she was having trouble swallowing, sleeping, eating, and working. We had been married at this point for 6 months. By July, the doctors didn't know what it was still. Nothing had helped. Antibiotics, anti-inflammatory pills, or any other remedy we tried. In July we rushed to the Emergency Room because it was getting hard for her to breathe.
After 3 weeks of testing and 2 biopsies, my wife was diagnosed with stage 4 Hodgkins Lymphoma.
We had gone through 4 different doctors, 2 hospitals, 3 months, and finally got an answer. It was going to be 6 months if treatments for my wife. Every other Monday from 8 am til we were done, usually around 4 or 5, sometimes as late as 7.
I am lucky because I married my best friend. Seeing her this way breaks my heart.
I promised to love and to cherish my wife in sickness and in health, through good times and bad, until I cannot breath anymore. Times are bad, and I promised I would always provide, but I am on my last leg. We are not even celebrating our Christmas this year because of the bills. I know it is the holidays, and it is a lot to ask, but please donate if you can. Share if you can. Anything helps.
