And so it begins

For 7 weeks, he's survived for 7 weeks! It's my new mantra for everyday I still have him in my life. We met 30 years ago in May, we both knew we'd always be together from then on. Life threw us a few curves every now and then but we coped, we managed to get through them so long as we had each other. And then THIS! This thing! This abomination of nature dares to intrude on our family again! His first cycle of chemo began today.... 17th April 2015 ...7 weeks since the first diagnosis of cancer .... Re diagnosed as Neuroendocrine tumour in the nasopharynx and lymph nodes in the neck.
