My Husband My Best friend My Everything
(Lake George, NY)
My husband of 18 years was diagnosed with Lung caner in November of 2011. We were sent to a hospital an hour from us to have a biopsy and they collapsed his lung. After 2 weeks in cpu and then a terrifying brain surgery his oncologist told us she expected a full cure..sent him to to await a laser procedure. 2 months later we were told they canceled it and his cancer had spread. I had been begging them to not wait. they started full brain radiation, did 2 weeks of that and started him on chemo. He was so week but his oncologist was still saying full cure. after a few more weeks we were told he had about 3 months left. He died 5 days later. It feel like he was taken in a accident. We never digested the fact he would not get the full cure they promised. I firmly believe a second biopsy is what realy killed him. I am so angry and so lost with out him. We are only 44 years old. We did not have life insurance. His funeral broke me, and we have two boys that are devasted. I can barely get through the day and the anerican cancer soscity has ignored my plees for help....Im so lost...lonely and angry..
