My husband was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer in June 2016. After ten years of battling with this cruel disease my husbands diagnosis hit us like a sledge hammer but after chemo we pledged to make our remaining time together memorable and that's exactly what we have done. We have carried out all but one of his wish list eg renewing our wedding vows, Edinburgh tattoo, going up Snowdon to name a few. Unfortunately five weeks we were carrying on our lives as normal as possible when my husband was struck down with this awful pain in his shoulder, after twelve hours we have been left devastated, he is paralysed down his right side due to the cancer spreading to his spinal cord and brain. Words cannot explain how we are feeling right now - we are currently in the hospice being looked after twenty four seven by the most amazing team of nurses and doctors. They are like angels. Our aim is to aim my husband home for his remaining days. Life without him doesn't seem possible but I will do my best. He is my best friend, my soul mate. Sorry to be so morbid but life is so cruel at times.
