My husband was 53 years old when he was diagnosed with cancer...what started out as a little cough and sore throat ended up being stage 4 squamous cell lymph node cancer with unknown primary. He fought hard and was not ready to give up on life or treatment. His battle ended Christmas of this last year 2011. This was a very difficult journey when you are given less that 9 months to live....how do you live your life? We took it day by day and thanked God for each day. The days are dark and I wait for the sun to shine.
