Goodbye and thank you

Hi everyone I am sorry to say that my husband died 10 days ago. We knew it was our last Christmas together and he was home on Christmas day which was what he wanted more than anything. He was diagnosed with SCLC in April 2018 so we had 21 months together after diagnodis which is more than a lot of people get. For that I am grateful. I dont know what I would have done without the support of this community. It provided help and information that I couldnt get elsewhere. So a very big thank you to you all and the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation. Good luck to those still coping with this awful disease. When will there be progress made towards cure for SCLC? I will continue to support the Foundation in its work. Thank you again.

Very sorry for the pain of this loss. His 21 month survival is a testament to the care he received from his loving family. I believe he passed knowing he was loved and he leaves a legacy of love. Not everyone finds that.

Prayers for comfort, for peace and for your healing.

So sorry for the loss of your husband to this horrible disease. It was lovely that you managed to have Christmas together. Treasure your memories and take care of yourself.

Nimrod2, My heart goes out to you for the Loss of your Wonderful Husband. You must remember that without Your care time may have been a lot less. You have obviously Nursed him wonderfully and for that you should be proud. We will all meet up with our Loved Ones one day in a place where this disease doesn't exist. Take time now to reflect on everything and Re-charge your batteries. I am having to do the same as My Tina passed on 18/12/19 after 9 months. God Bless You and Your Family. Just be strong.

Thank you. I am sure that you and I are feeling much the same at the moment. It is lonely when I close the curtains at night. Looking forward to spring and summer. I have many happy memories but the loss is too raw at the moment for me to explore thise too deeply. I am sure we will come through this stronger people.

Nimrod, Yes it is all raw, I have Tina's funeral on Monday and it is hard to understand. We never get over this type of thing. We come to terms with it.

Take Care and God Bless You

John

I will think of you on Monday. My husbands funeral is 20th. We will survive this and move on but they will always be in our hearts.

They certainly will be there forever. And Thank You

God Bless

John

I am so very sorry to hear of the passing of your husband but glad you were able to enjoy a final Christmas together. SCLC is very aggressive and the fact you had 21 months together after his diagnosis is, as has already been said, undoubtedly testament to the care, love and support he received, which is hopefully of comfort to you. I hope your many lovely memories of your husband and the knowledge that so many people are thinking of you at this very sad and distressing time, will also be of comfort in the days ahead.

Look after yourself and I pray for you to find peace and healing. 🌈

Helloo Nimrod

I am so sorry for your loss from this hateful disease.

I’m so sorry for your loss and am super grateful that you were able to get some comfort here. There is nothing anyone can say to make this easier for you so I won’t even try. All I can say is that you are welcome to stay a part of our group here because you have a lot to contribute. This is an awful disease and it effects the loved ones of the patient as much as the patient themselves. I wish you a happy and healthy new year and thank you again for being a part of this group and sharing your story.

Thank you for this. I will stay part of the group as I want to continue to support the Foundation and give any help I can.
