I am about to become a widow

(1/2) > >>

My name is Fuchsia.  I am caregiver to my most wonderful husband Rob...who is  dying of cancer.   

He has been fighting for nearly 3 years and has been considered terminal since last June.   I don't expect him to see the spring. He is so young - only 44.  He is my best friend, my love, the father of my child and he is slipping away day by day.  I am so lost.  This hurts so much.  But I keep going because I must. Even if I don't know how I am doing it. 

Can I be here? Even though I'm only almost a widow? 

Welcome.  Others have come here before and been welcome.  Hopefully they will answer your post.  I'm so sorry you are going through this...


I was a part of this community before my wife died. I think it really helped me realize I wasn't alone. My wife died of breast cancer at the age of 35. We have a 6 year old.
Feel free to message me (or post ) if you have questions.
Take care of yourself. You are not alone.

My husband died of brain cancer.  I've been there.  You can message me, too.  Hang on! 

Cherish your last months, weeks days together. Hugs to you and your family.
