Just as I seemed to get better with my medical problems my wife seemed to falter as she took care of me.We now find she has lung and bone cancer,stage 4.We tried  chemo and radiation but she was already so weak we had to stop treatments and bring her home.Hospice is now helping me care for her and I'm on medical leave so I can stay home with her.As it stands ,although we know the eventual outcome we try to keep things here at home as normal as possible.But ,its hard,very hard.

Wish there was something I could say.  I'm speechless when I hear stories like this.  Make the best of the time you have left and be thankful for the time you had.  You are a stronger man than me.  I'm sure I would fall apart if I had to go through this.  Know you are in my thoughts now.

My heart goes out to you and your wife. If there is any thing you need help with, please let us on the Nation know  and we'll figure out a way to do what we can.

Hi Roger I myself have been through a lot this year I know and understand what you are going through. Though I don't pray with fancy words as some, my prayers come from the heart because I know if it's to be God will answer all prayers according what is best for each.

Lord I humbley come to you in pray for Roger and his wife, I know you hear our prayers because you answered me when my wife was so sick. We cast this cancer out in the name of Jesus that Name that has power. Hear us lord for this couple. Make her whole lord as good as new also we pray for Roger as he to is going through much sickness in his life. We hold them uyp to you Lord to make them both whole and we cast out all sickness in the name of Jesus.

In Jesus' Name we pray. Amen

I am so sorry to hear that Roger. I will pray fervently for a miracle for both of you.
