    Can't believe this is happening to my husband, we planned to grow old together

    Oh No

    I was numb, my brain stopping, then I cried. My husband asked the doctor when do we get started. I prayed for this to a nightmare we awake from or that God will give me this cancer and let my husband be free from it
