I met a wonderful woman whilst going through treatment. We bonded almost instantly. Over the last few months we have found things to do together that really helped us. I knew from the start she had been given a very poor prognosis but she was determined to fight and focus on everything she could do to help herself. Now having been told she is losing that fight and only has weeks to live I am beside myself with sadness but also hit again by realisation that these are the very harsh realities of the disease. Now, I wonder how does someone deal with being told that? I know we all are told treatment might not work.. So the threat is always there.. I guess it's hard to face the reality when it comes close. Even though we face death, I don't know what to say or how to help?
