    Thank you PopPop for your reply!  My husbands cancer is also the base of his tongue, throat and neck.  Surgery is not an option we were told.

        My husband just went to the dr's for his chemo and radiation schedule.  He usually is the most positive person.  Last night he told me that he is getting depressed.  He met with the radiation dr. yesterday, so she could do a scope.  He said she sounded like as if this is going to be a challenge for her.  He told me last night that nothing is bringing him joy. How do I help him stay positive?

        My husband found out a month ago that he has throat cancer. He is the most positive person I've ever met. Since going through the chemo and radiation schedule, we don't know what to expect. I also think he's starting to lose the positive attitude. How do I help him stay positive and give him the support he needs?
