Pancreas Cancer Web
I am a caregiver for my husband who has had pancreatic cancer for 10 months
now. So far, he is doing well despite all the dire warnings, statistics and
brutally honest oncologists. I, however, as his caregiver am not doing so
well. In the beginning, I maintained optimisim and radiated it out to my
husband and children. I feel i need support in order not to collapse. It is
heartrending and I actually feel like my heart is breaking. He is at stage 4
with the cancer that has spread to the liver. I am just so afraid of going
back to those initial months of terrible suffering that he went through. It
is also extremely difficult keeping him hopeful. He still works and has chemo
every fortnight. He even walks 3 kms a day. I am so proud of him. I would
really like to hear from other caregivers who swing from hope to despair and
back again. Thank you.
