Dan, this is sad news. It seems to me you're making the right decision, but acknowledge the short-term trouble it means for you both.

My wish is that this is just a bad memory in the rearview...

Shel Holtz

Oh, Dan, I'm so sorry to hear it. Our thoughts and prayers are with you both.


So sorry to hear this Dan. All me best to a speedy recovery and beating it.

Clarence Jones

Bless you both. I would choose the path you're embarking on. My cousin is in her 3rd month of chemo against breast cancer. She's 37. The Sun will shine again for you one day soon.


Sad news, Dan, even if it may not have been wholly unexpected. Thoughts with you and your wife.

Your point re she could be cancer-free right now but there's no way of knowing is one that will resonate strongly with anyone who's going through this or similar. Look at it this way: what your wife will go through now is the absolute best that medical science currently knows. That is a comfort no matter how small it seems.

Clarence says it well: The sun will shine again for you.
