Our son was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma stageIII or IV
Depending on which Dr we talked to. He is married and has four young sons & a very supportive wife. He went thru chemo & methotrexate (nasty effects) and it will be 2 yrs in April that he is cancer free. They told him it is not a question of "if" but "when" it will come back. Only a tiny % remain in remission. I read Mark's journal 2 times and my heart breaks for you and your family...you are an awesome strong woman for your family!! I don't know what I would do if that happened to me. I lost it when my husband lost his brother to cancer a yr ago. I have nursed hundreds of patients with cancer & worked @ Hospice over a yrBUT not the same as a family member.
I am convinced you are truly a saint!
I recently bought the first edition of Tell My Sons and hope to read it by Christmas. Is the second printing with a different cover any different?
I also would like your opinion if you think it would be appropriate to give a copy to my son who had lymphoma?
I keep you and your sons in my prayers daily and hope that life will give you nothing but the best.
